Who we are:
Unidos Contra la Diabetes is a collective impact, community partnership dedicated to preventing diabetes in the Rio Grande Valley. We bring people together in a structured way to achieve social, behavioral, and sustainable community change.
Unidos Contra la Diabetes (UCD) began in 2014 as a group of community leaders who wanted to improve the lives of the Rio Grande Valley. Looking at upstream, strategic, and sustainable changes, the group made its mission to focus on prediabetes and the prevention of diabetes.
UCD works together with hospitals, community clinics, foundations, universities, and faith-based organizations to improve the lives of children and families in our area. Now, we are building on existing efforts and partnerships by coming together as a united group to increase our impact on diabetes prevention.
