Why Type 2 Diabetes Foundation Inc

It Starts With the Children

https://www.whytype2diabetes.org/ Tax ID 85-1905792


WHY Type 2 Foundation’s mission is to develop and support practical, sustainable initiatives at a grassroots level addressing two of the principal interdependent factors in the rise of type 2 diabetes -- nutrition/lifestyle education and the availability of affordable, healthy food. The former creates the demand for change while the latter addresses localized supply deficiencies.   Both of these factors must be addressed in tandem within a community to truly affect long-term change. Our focus will be to provide a basis for children and adults to have an opportunity to realize the benefits of better health both now and in the future.
