Diabetes is a health epidemic, and only continues to grow in prevalence. Every year, there are 1.7 million new diagnoses, resulting in over 30 million Americans with the disease. Additionally, 86 million Americans have prediabetes, which if not treated or reversed will lead to an exponential increase in diabetes. If these trends continue, 1 in 3 Americans will have diabetes by the year 2050. These trends cannot continue.
The mission of the American Diabetes Association is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. We support people with diabetes through research, advocacy and information. At a time when the national government is decreasing its funding to diabetes research, the ADA is playing a critical role in ensuring that researchers receiving critical funding. We garner community support for people living with diabetes by promoting safety in schools, improving health care and protecting health insurance coverage, and ending workplace discrimination. Lastly, we provide education and information on diabetes prevention and/or management for children and adults.
