Hispanic or Latino adults have more than a 50% chance of developing diabetes (and at a younger age), along with higher rates of complications, such as a kidney failure and vision loss. Over 96 million Americans are prediabetic and 37 million are living with diabetes. You can live a healthy, active life with diabetes when it’s managed well.

Whether you were recently diagnosed, have lived with diabetes for years or had a complication or change in condition, we can help. Learn more about how we can help with a diabetes diagnosis.

Gender-affirming Care

The LBGTQ+ community was disproportionately affected by COVID-19 with higher rates of job loss, mental health issues, and public health concerns. Currently, multiple Banner facilities are actively pursuing the Health Equality Index national designation and supporting gender-inclusive care. We have also partnered with public health leaders to implement multiple projects to better support LGBTQ+ patients and care teams that serve them. The system DE&I team also developed a new LBGTQ+ training for its providers that received national approval by the Human Rights Campaign to use for trainings and certification of its facilities. The team sponsored the 2023 National LBGTQ+ Healthcare Symposium hosted at the University of Arizona; celebrated national LBGTQ+ Health Awareness week; and hosted panel discussions with subject matter experts on LBGTQ+ care with physicians and administrators during PRIDE Month, which captured a record turnout of approximately participants.
