The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now making an alarming prediction that 1 in 3 Americans is either pre-diabetic or diabetic. This problem is especially concentrated in impoverished urban communities, where adequate nutrition is scarce and many are unaware of diabetes' impact on quality and quantity of life. That's why we're excited to launch a brand new Diabetes Management Program in Bonton, South Dallas in October 2018. Through this, more than 1,000 people will be screened for the disease, and those who are diagnosed will have the chance to enter a free year-long community-based education and treatment program. The ultimate goal will be to widen this program into more DFW communities in 2019.
"Type 2 diabetes is hitting epidemic levels around the world. I applaud The Root Cause for setting out to fight this disease."
--Jimmy J. Kolker, former US Ambassador and Assistant Secretary for Global Affairs, US Department of Health and Human Services

"I was blessed to get diagnosed early. A lot of people in my neighborhood never get diagnosed. They lose their legs, go blind, or get heart disease before they learn they're diabetic." --"Charity", Diabetic South Dallas Resident
