UNIDOS CONTRA LA DIABETES

Unidos Contra la Diabetes is a community partnership dedicated to preventing diabetes in the Rio Grande Valley.

Unidos Contra la Diabetes (UCD) works together with hospitals, community clinics, foundations, universities and churches to improve the lives of children and families in our community. Now, the focus is  building on existing efforts and partnerships by coming together as a collective unit to magnify their impact on this important challenge.

The goal of Unidos Contra Diabetes is to reduce the number of new cases of type II diabetes in 5 years, resulting in a 10 percent reduction in the prevalence of diabetes by 2030. UCD is committed to doing this by integrating primary and behavioral health for people at-risk for diabetes in our community, with a particular emphasis on meeting the needs of low-income and underserved populations.
