About AFRICAN AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION
PO BOX 1724, BELTSVILLE, MD 20704, US
The African American Diabetes Association (AADA) is a national tax-exempt 501c3 nonprofit organization that seeks to educate African Americans and the general public about diabetes. We work to assist those impacted to manage and prevent diabetes (including type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, and pre-diabetes). AADA is passionate, serious, and committed to diabetes prevention and educational programs that work to end health disparities. We advocate for African Americans affected by diabetic conditions and empower African Americans to maximize their quality of life and raise public consciousness while advancing the search for a universal cure.
AADA believes that high quality diabetes care and education should be available to every individual, in all communities. Unfortunately, individuals from some racial and ethnic groups are at a higher risk for diabetes and the complications of diabetes. We’ve seen the impact of those systemic social and health inequities with COVID-19 across our country, and we see them every day with prediabetes and diabetes in our own communities. To improve health outcomes for people with prediabetes, diabetes and cardiometabolic diseases the AADA is working in partnership with community stakeholders to prevent or delay more cases of type 2 diabetes. AADA believes that we can address these health inequities.
The AADA believes that as Americans we must work to address the disproportional burden of disease health inequities place on communities of color. As a new and emerging national organization, AADA is developing building a national outreach and education strategy to address the challenges of diabetes in the African American community that will ensure optimal health and quality of life a reality for African American (Black) communities throughout our country.
