New Resources for African Americans with or at risk for Type 2 Diabetes

Use NDEP resources to help African Americans at risk for type 2 diabetes and its complications.

Diabetes is an epidemic throughout the United States. In the past 30 years, the number of adults diagnosed with diabetes has increased more than 150 percent. African Americans are 80 percent more likely than non-Hispanic whites to be diagnosed with diabetes.

The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) offers tools and resources you can use to help people with or at risk for type 2 diabetes.

As a faith community leader, trusted community organization, or local health care provider, you are in a unique and important position to educate people at risk for diabetes. Explore other NDEP resources that help you motivate people to take steps toward healthful living.
