November 14, 2023

For Immediate Release


Sen. Tony Hwang issued the following statement regarding today being “World Diabetes Day”:

“Today, we recognize World Diabetes Day to highlight the importance of emphasizing diagnosis and – hopefully – prevention. It is important – and personal for me living with type 2 diabetes – to raise awareness on helping others know their risk and know their response.  One in 10 adults worldwide have diabetes. Over 90% have type 2 diabetes. Close to half are not yet diagnosed. In many cases, type 2 diabetes and its complications can be delayed or prevented by adopting and maintaining healthy habits. Please help me spread the word about this vital health issue, and visit for more information.”
