Spread the word

Southeast Virginia has the second highest prevalence of diabetes in the state, with an estimated 175,000 people in Hampton Roads living with the disease. With diabetes at epidemic proportions nationwide, EVMS' mission to raise awareness about diabetes is more crucial than ever to the health of people in Hampton Roads and beyond.

The goal of our diabetes awareness campaign is to help educate people about the debilitating complications of diabetes, and encourage them to see their doctor and know their diabetes risk.
