Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in adults today. Lions internationally have been increasing their efforts to work with diabetes awareness programs, raise money for research to find a cure for this disease and to assist persons with diabetes. Locally, the Lions have funded the Larimer County Diabetes Helpline, a fund established to provide short-term assistance for diabetics to purchase insulin or test strips for blood glucose meters.

If you or someone you know is diabetic and may need assistance contact the Diabetes Education department at Poudre Valley Hospital
