No shame.
No blame.
Just one aim.

You didn't ask to live with prediabetes or type 2 and shouldn't feel guilty if you do. Project Power Youth has always been here for kids, ages 5–12. Now Project Power Adult is here for those 18 years or older. We're here to help the whole family.

What is Project Power?

Family in front of house

The American Diabetes Association’s (ADA’s) Project Power is an initiative with the aim to  help adults and youth identify and lower their risk for diabetes or manage the disease.

<b>In partnership with CVS Health, Project Power is on a mission to tackle this epidemic.</b> As a no-cost prevention program, Project Power tackles prediabetes and type 2 diabetes to help reduce its consequences. Using an outcomes-based curriculum, the program promotes making healthy food choices, increasing physical activity, and building family and peer support.

Do you want to make a difference in your community? Are you 18 years or older? Do you like to have fun while helping to improve the health of others? If so, we have an opportunity for you.

Project Power Community Partner

The ADA is looking for organizations and groups in the community to promote and recruit participants or facilitate on-site sessions for the ADA's Project Power.

You're never too young or old to lower your diabetes risk.

Diabetes is a disease to be talked about, not feared. Because the more you understand, the easier it is to manage. If you or a family member is at risk, Project Power is here to make living healthy second nature for both adults and kids living with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.

Are you at risk?

Know your risk. Change your future.

One quick, simple test can help you understand if you are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. With that knowledge and a little work, you can actually manage your risk and take back your life.
