Guam Diabetes Association

The Guam Diabetes Association was established in 1982 by Albert Carbullido, the Association’s first president, beginning with only 7 members. In 1992, Carl T. Butler became the Association’s new president and as of today the Association now has well over 80 members, all committed to promoting diabetes awareness.

As a community support group whose membership consists of persons and families with diabetes, they hold monthly diabetes sessions, membership and boards meetings. At the regularly scheduled sessions, guests speakers, both on and off-island, cover topics on foot, eye, and dental care, self blood glucose monitoring, nutrition, and physical activity and its relation to the prevention, control, and management of diabetes.

The Guam Diabetes Association welcomes all those with diabetes to come and join them as they help spread diabetes awareness. Please contact them below.
