Step Out for Diabetes
Broward Health is proud to be the presenting sponsor for the 2019 South Florida Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes. The disease takes the lives of more people annually than breast cancer and AIDS combined, and a new person is diagnosed with diabetes every 21 seconds.
Join us as we raise awareness and funds for diabetes research and program development.
