MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Illinois Diabetes Policy Coalition

The IDPC is comprised of several local and statewide advocacy organizations committed to preventing and reducing the incidence of diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, African Americans now make up one-fifth (1/5) of the United States diabetes population. The ILAACP is interested in leveraging the work of the IDPC to increase public awareness and consciousness in African American communities about the steps they can take to prevent and reduce diabetes. The IDPC hosts an annual Diabetes Prevention Lobby Day in Springfield, IL to educate state lawmakers about the importance of diabetes prevention.
