The American Diabetes Association reports one in nine people (approximately 155,000) in Hawaii have diabetes and another 460,000 have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Ninety percent of those at risk don’t know they are prediabetic.

“Education is critical to preventing type 2 diabetes and the only way we can fight this epidemic,” said Jolly Uclaray, Maui Memorial Medical Center diabetes educator. “So, we are thankful for all the participating organizations who, like Maui Health System, work hard to keep our community healthy through events like these.”

In addition to the annual community event, Maui Health System also offers free monthly classes that are open to the public. The Diabetes Support Group meets on the second Wednesday of every month at Maui Memorial Medical Center and provides education, skills and other resources to diabetes patients and their families. Each meeting focuses on a different topic and special guest speakers provide specialized expertise on daily management and ways to prevent diabetes.
