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.
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.
