Who We Are

The Hawaii community is increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes. Today, approximately 120,971 people in Hawaii, or 10.6% of the adult population, have diagnosed diabetes. The American Diabetes Association can provide resources for you and your family about all types of diabetes as well as information for caregivers and others affected indirectly by the disease.

The moving force behind the work of the American Diabetes Association® is a network of more than 565,000 volunteers, their families and caregivers, a professional society of nearly 12,000 health care professionals, as well as nearly 350 staff members.

The American Diabetes Association’s Hawaii office is committed to educating our communities about how to stop diabetes and supporting those living with the disease.
