About this site

As our community’s public health system, Parkland is the foundation for a healthy Dallas. Diabetes affects 11.4% of the population in Dallas and Parkland wants to play a part in lowering that number.

This site is a place for you to get the information you need to make the best choices for your and your family’s health when it comes to diabetes. You’ll find information from our experts on what diabetes is, how to prevent it, how to control it and resources to help you and your family get through diabetes. You don’t have to go through diabetes alone. We’re here to give you the tools to help you take better care of yourself and manage your diabetes.
