Our office serves most of the state of Kansas. 24 million Americans have diabetes and 57 million have prediabetes. Nearly 9% or 180,000 Kansans suffer from diabetes.
Our office offers several resources for our community. We have programs like Family Link Support Group and summer camps for kids to learn more about managing their diabetes (and have a great time being a kid)! We also have advocacy programs, like Safe in Schools. We raise awareness with health fairs and events like American Diabetes Association Alert Day. We have a library here with books and journals that are free to the public as well.
Our Tour de Cure bicycle ride is back in Wichita! Cyclists of all levels are welcome to attend. Tour de Cure is the premier cycling fundraising event of the American Diabetes Association and the nation’s largest diabetes cycling event.
