The EPDA mission has been to improve the quality of life of individuals with and at risk of developing diabetes and their families.

According to the El Paso Diabetes Association, 86 million United States adults have pre-diabetes, and 90% of those do not even know they have it.

The EPDA opened its doors in Mrs. Estelle Goldman’s garage in El Paso, Texas, in November 1968 as the South chapter of the American Diabetes Association. The only program at that time was a support group for families with type 1 children.

Four years later, the EPDA chose to expand programs and to disaffiliate, making it one of a handful of independent diabetes associations in the country. Programs grew to Diabetes Management, Cooking Sessions, Support Groups, and the Annual Blossoms and Blooms. In the 1990s, the EPDA opted to go into population health as the rates of type 2 diabetes escalated in our community and along the border.

Today, the EPDA is an accredited, local and independent diabetes organization with many programs and services. The EPDA continues without any  affiliations to state or national diabetes organizations to ensure that the needs of our local community are understood and met.

The walk will take place at the Fountains of Farah, 8889 Gateway West, Saturday May 20th with registration beginning at 7: 00 a.m. and Walk at 8:00 a.m. with a cost of $25 per person.  For more information, call 915-532-6280.
