Diabetes affects 30 million people in the U.S., and 627,000 people in Washington State. Additionally, 84 million people in the U.S., including 2 million in Washington State, have prediabetes. Diabetes has serious human and economic costs for our communities.
The World Diabetes Day Washington (WDDWashington) campaign goal is to boost awareness of this rising health concern, promote early screening, and effective management by:
• Celebrating and encouraging those maintaining or working towards a healthy lifestyle,
• Increasing awareness and educating our communities, and
• Informing people on the importance of diabetes prevention.
Over the next several weeks we will be helping to increase diabetes awareness and decrease the impact of diabetes in our state
by encouraging #diabetesmanagement, #diabetesawareness, and #diabetesprevention.

Um 91% of older adults have a least one chronic condition, and 73% have at least two. Chronic conditions – such as diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, and lung disease – seriously compromise the quality of life of older adults, often forcing them to give up their independence too soon. Chronic conditions also place a significant financial burden on individuals as well as health care systems. In 2011, this cost totaled nearly $3 trillion. The traditional medical model – which focuses more on the illness than the patient – is costly and often ineffective. Get more facts on the impact of chronic disease at the NCOA Center for Healthy Aging – Chronic Disease.
