Joining Together in the Fight Against Diabetes
The Dignity Memorial® network is a National Strategic Partner of the American Diabetes Association. That means, as a network of providers, we’ve joined the fight against diabetes. This life-altering disease affects more than 23 million Americans. We believe that by joining together across the country, we can positively impact the lives of Americans living with and fighting diabetes. For more information about diabetes, visit the American Diabetes Association.
Team Dignity is composed of employees, families and friends of Funerarias Del Angel® providers and other Dignity Memorial providers across the country. Together, we’re working to support the American Diabetes Association in its effort to fight diabetes. Through our commitment to Fund, Educate, Act and Treasure, Team Dignity makes a difference in the communities we serve.
Money donated to the American Diabetes Association is critical to fund research, information and advocacy programs to combat diabetes. Funerarias Del Angel providers and other Dignity Memorial providers support these efforts with corporate donations, as well as the encouragement of employee fundraising activities.
More than 23 million people in the United States have diabetes, which means nearly one in four of our associates and customers are personally impacted by this disease. Funerarias Del Angel providers and other Dignity Memorial providers help to inform our associates and communities about health factors that increase diabetes risk and ways to manage this disease.
Funerarias Del Angel providers and other Dignity Memorial providers encourage their associates to tackle diabetes head-on, with diet, exercise, advocacy and monetary contributions. Though there is no cure for diabetes, we hope that encouraging associates to maintain active lifestyles will help them lead longer, healthier lives.
Those lost to diabetes are dearly loved by family and friends. Funerarias Del Angel providers and other Dignity Memorial network providers treasure each life story, and help loved ones honor and remember with personalized services and unique Internet tributes.
