After torrential tornadoes swept through Tuscaloosa, Alabama in 2011, health problems increased in an area where 12.2% of people have diabetes. With greater poverty comes the prevalence of diabetes and treating it became more of a challenge. Many lost their glucose meters, insulin, and basic necessities they needed to take care of themselves.
