Diabetes Advocates Urge Members of Congress to Support Creation of National Diabetes Coordinator
Date:3/11/2008

.

"Diabetes is an escalating health crisis in the United States that can't be ignored," said Representative Jay Inslee (D-Wash.), a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. "Unless we do something to reverse current trends, more and more of America's children will develop the disease during the course of their lifetime."

Research shows that efforts focused on diabetes prevention and early treatment can save lives and dollars; yet, the federal government spends less than $4 billion total on prevention and health promotion across all disease states(3). Investing more in prevention can help reduce the number of lives lost and the costs associated with diabetes.

"The National Diabetes Coordinator Act directly supports a principal consensus recommendation from important organizations in the healthcare community -- calling for increased federal leadership," said Jerzy Gruhn, President of Novo Nordisk. "Novo Nordisk, through the National Changing Diabetes(R) Program, is dedicated to helping defeat diabetes by supporting coordinated programs among the public and private sector to improve diabetes prevention and treatment."

"We support the efforts of Rep. Inslee to improve existing efforts for reducing diabetes and create new opportunities for the federal government to improve national leadership on this disease," said Richard Hellman, MD, the president of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.

"The American Association of Diabetes Educators supports the National Diabetes Coordinator Act and the effort behind it to improve the prevention, detection and care of diabetes in the United States," said Amparo Gonzalez, RN, BSN, CDE, the president of the American Association of Diabetes Educators.
