Funding for Research and Programs
We are working to increase the state and federal commitment to diabetes research, treatment and programs.
We are asking Congress and the Administration to increase funding for diabetes research at the National Institutes of Health and diabetes treatment and prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
We are working to increase state support for State Diabetes Control Programs which increase access to diabetes care and treatment and promote public awareness about diabetes.
We are asking Congress to support legislation which seeks to reduce the incidence of gestational diabetes and prevent women afflicted with this condition and their children from developing type 2 diabetes later on in life.
