It should be simple: no matter someone's race, income level or background, quality care and life-changing technologies should be affordable and broadly accessible to all people. Yet, in the case of diabetes, studies have shown that people from underserved communities are at higher risk and have less access to technology to manage the condition. Working to change this, last year Abbott signed on to become the first anchor sponsor of the American Diabetes Association's Health Equity NowTM platform, which aims to ensure that the more than 122 million Americans living with diabetes and prediabetes1, along with millions more at risk for diabetes, have equal access to health resources in cost, care, cure, community and cuisine that can create a future without unjust health disparities. And now we're bringing this to life on the ground. Together with the ADA, we're launching the first community program under the Health Equity Now platform in Columbus, Ohio, conducted in partnership with the National Center for Urban Solutions (NCUS), a Columbus-based organization focused on providing solutions in workforce development, education and wellness.
