The Arizona Diabetes Coalition hF Widget is now LIVE! Widget can be applied to fit the needs of your organization.

The purpose of the Arizona Diabetes Coalition is to reduce the burden of diabetes on individuals, families, communities, the health care system, and Arizona. This is done by increasing awareness of diabetes, advocating for and promoting policies and programs that improve access to care, treatment, and outcomes for people with diabetes and those at risk for developing diabetes.

The Coalition is guided by the Arizona Diabetes Strategic Plan, 2008-2013 and, effective January 1, 2006, operates according to by-laws.
