DAWN logoThe DAWN Center provides free diabetes self-management education and many other health related services to Houstonians in order to reduce and prevent chronic disease.

The Challenge

Combating the high rate of type 2 diabetes in moderate to low-income ares.

The Solution

DAWN was designed to provide health education and behavior intervention to adults diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, as well as adults at risk for having this condition. The location of the DAWN Center, Third Ward Multi-Service Center, was chosen for its proximity to Riverside General Hospital. The location allows the DAWN program to have access to those hospitalized individuals with uncontrolled diabetes, and assists them in gaining the tools needed to live a healthier, richer, longer life.


Join DAWN for a Health Happy Hour with mocktails and healthy appetizers, Nov. 14 from 5 - 7 p.m. at the Third Ward Multi-Service Center to observe National Diabetes Day.
