The ADA Answers in 170 Languages

This flyer explains the Association's interpretation services in Vietnamese.

The American Diabetes Association is branching out to reach non-English speakers who want to learn more about diabetes. This year, the ADA is promoting the interpretation services provided at its Center for Information and Community Support.

When calling 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383), simply say the language you wish to use, and the operator will connect an interpreter to the call. Through the interpreter, you can access the Association's information on healthy recipes, medication, financial aid, and more. While most printed ADA material hasn't been translated into languages other than Spanish, you can get live, one-on-one answers to your questions. You can also e-mail questions in English to askADA@diabetes.org or in Spanish to preguntas@diabetes.org.
