In 2012, the American Diabetes Association stated that 1 out of 7 adults in California have been diagnosed with diabetes. My father battled Type II diabetes and therefore it is a disease I am personally sensitive to. November is Diabetes Awareness Month. That month, through my San Diego Premier Lion's Club, we coordinate Strides, a local diabetes awareness walk.
In November 2010, our Lion's Club offered free dance lessons to the San Diego community to promote active lifestyles and diabetes prevention. We had health professionals educating participants and community members sharing their personal stories living with the disease. Please view our video below sponsored by Lion's Club International.
