Why the Fight Against Diabetes Is One of Our Global Causes

Diabetes is one of the most pervasive and fastest-growing diseases in the world today. It affects people of all races, income levels, and ages—even children.

Lions Clubs International Foundation is responding to this global epidemic by committing to help prevent diabetes and improve quality of life for those who have been diagnosed through multi-faceted, comprehensive health initiatives.
