Diabetes claims the lives of more adults each year than malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS combined. The Root Cause works alongside government and community leaders to help prevent, diagnose, and treat type 2 diabetes among underdeveloped communities -- transforming the lives of many who struggle with this deadly, expensive 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
