Our commitment to you and your Hispanic patients

Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is committed to providing ongoing support to you and your patients in the effort to manage type 2 diabetes. Part of that commitment is Janssen’s initiative to provide support to your Hispanic patients, who suffer from a disproportionately high incidence of type 2 diabetes. 

  • On average, Americans of Hispanic origin are 1.7 times more likely to have type 2 diabetes than non-Hispanic American whites1 

As one of your patients’ strongest allies in the management of type 2 diabetes, you’ll find that Janssen’s Spanish-language materials and resources will give you additional tools and insights into this important patient population, whose cultural attitudes and behaviors have a large impact on their type 2 diabetes and their approaches to its treatment.

 

When compared to non-Hispanic white adults over 20 years of age, the risk of diabetes* in adults of certain Hispanic groups is almost double.2
