Why Should You Care?

Diabetes is an urgent health problem in the Hispanic community in San Antonio. Hispanics are 1.7 more likely to develop diabetes than non-Hispanic whites.  In San Antonio, the prevalence of diabetes is twice the national average – 14% of the community is living everyday with diabetes.  Of these, over 87,000 are Hispanic

Diabetes, if left untreated, can lead to stroke, heart disease, blindness and amputations. Getting information to the community about the seriousness of diabetes, its risk factors and those who may be at risk, and ways to help manage the disease is essential.

Many Hispanics feel guilty spending time and money on personal health. They feel selfish putting their own health care ahead of their family’s needs. The opposite should be true. The American Diabetes Association is here for their family, and we want to bring the message home that each person should take care of their diabetes or prevent themselves from developing it, for thier family’s sake too.

That is why YOUR San Antonio American Diabetes Association and HEB will be providing the following Bilingual Community Educational Workshops and a Conferencia FREE for anyone that would like to attend!
