Diabetes in Kentucky is common, costly and serious. Fortunately, diabetes can be controlled in those who have it and prevented in those who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Please see the current Diabetes Fact Sheet for detailed facts and figures about diabetes in Kentucky,
The Kentucky Diabetes Network (KDN) was formed in 1999 in direct response to the scope of the problem in Kentucky with the realization that addressing diabetes adequately would require a concerted effort of all the entities that have a stake in the problem. This partnership of public and private entities and individuals is dedicated to improving the treatment and outcomes of Kentuckians with diabetes, promoting early diagnosis, and ultimately preventing the onset of diabetes among those at risk. KDN incorporated in September of 2002 was subsequently granted status as a non-profit, 501 (c) (3), organization by the Internal Revenue Service. Since its formation in 1999, KDN has undertaken a wide variety of activities in the areas of patient and professional education, primary prevention and advocacy. These efforts have resulted in numerous Successes and Awards and national recognition.
Membership in KDN is open to all and is free. You can become a member of KDN simply by completing a member commitment form.
