ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Diabetes Association (ADA), the leading non-profit health organization dedicated to preventing and curing diabetes and to improving the lives of nearly 21 million children and adults currently living with the disease, announced today that John B.

Dr. Buse has chaired several of ADA's Committees and Task Forces as well as served as the Associate Editor of ADA's journals, Clinical Diabetes and Diabetes Care.

Diabetes is a serious disease that affects the body's ability to produce or respond properly to insulin, a hormone that allows blood sugar to enter the cells of the body and be used for energy. Nearly 21 million children and adults in the U.S. have diabetes. It is the fifth deadliest disease in the U.S. and it has no cure.

The American Diabetes Association is the nation's premier voluntary health organization supporting diabetes research, information and advocacy. Founded in 1940, the Association has offices in every region of the country, providing services to hundreds of communities. The Association's commitment to research is reflected through its scientific meetings; education and provider recognition programs; and its Research Foundation and Nationwide Research Program, which fund breakthrough studies looking into the cure, prevention, and treatment of diabetes and its complications.
