Educational seminars on type 2 diabetes are open to the general public and started when the foundation was formed. Over 5000 participants have attended the seminars since 2007. The seminars cover the topics:
- What is Diabetes?
- The growth of diabetes in the state of Arizona
- What are the symptoms of diabetes?
- How to prevent diabetes and manage diabetes through medication, exercise, diet, glucose monitoring and lifestyle changes.
The seminars also cover the life threatening complications that occur in this deadly disease. Referral services are provided to attendees that have diabetes and are not currently under medical treatment.
It is the long term goal of the foundation to open a free clinic to the public for those individuals that have type 2 diabetes and are not covered by insurance or a health care plan. In 2014 the foundation hopes to secure a grant from a local foundation to open the free diabetes clinic at the foundation offices located at 15255 N. 40th Street, Suite 127, Phoenix, Arizona. It is the goal of the foundation to operate the free clinic once a month and then expand services as the demand dictates.
