March 16, 2020


Out of a multitude of concern and caution regarding the current state of the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, our community outreach activities and special social events have been placed on postponement, provisionally. 

As the condition develops, understand we will devote our capacity and resources in reacting in real-time to make sure we are here to be a wellspring of support to people affected by diabetes. 

With circumspect planning and recommendations from public health officials, we are eager to recommence our work soon.

In these unprecedented moments, we are reminded, the health and safety of the community is invariably of greatest importance.

**UPDATE**

August 4, 2021

As a consequence of rising cases of the Delta variant of Covid-19, some of our in-person events, activities and gatherings have been suspended through September 27, 2021. This excludes donation distribution operations for crisis support response. 

What We Know About the Delta Variant

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Delta variant, a highly contagious SARS-CoV-2 virus strain, accounts for over 80% of the nation’s COVID-19 cases. The first Delta case was identified in India in December of 2020. Read more here

Because people diagnosed with diabetes may be at a higher risk of experiencing complications and getting very sick from COVID-19 we are still here to help via online health education sessions.

Please periodically visit our online portal for a variety of Diabetes information, tools, links, and more.
