EPDA has been one of hte few independent associations from the American Diabetes Association, serving the needs of El Paso residents. What impresses me the most is how much they accomplish with just a small staff and a small building. Seeing from the outside in, as a person with diabetes, I can say with confidence that they are the sensivive pulse of the people with diabetes. The gamut of what they do is awesome, extending from screenings all over the area, to camps, to cooking classes and support lectures, to research, in order to sustain their independent status with constant fundraising projects and education for professionals.

The El Paso Diabetes Association is a very active service organization. The director and staff are always in search of new and innovative ways to serve their community and fulfill a mission they take very seriously. As an agency they are a great team player, and make the El Paso service network more effective and efficient because of their presence.

This is such a wonderful organization! I have great respect for the staff of EPDA and the director. They do so much for our community in creating awareness and education for us here in El Paso from their camps to their cooking classes. They are so important to our community as a good majority of El Pasoans are affected by diabetes.

EPDA provides many services for people with diabetes in the area. They have diabetes educators who understand and know how to teach patients and ways to address their barriers. This organization has been helpful in engaging the public to raise awareness of diabetes through events such as the diabetes walk. They have also been very helpful in engaging physicians to address diabetes and understand clinical care guidelines. Great group!
