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. Buse, MD, PhD of Chapel Hill, NC, has been elected President, Medicine & Science.

As President, Medicine & Science, Dr. Buse is one of the principal officers of the ADA and will serve as the principal spokesperson and advocate of the Association on scientific and medical matters. He will also work closely with ADA volunteers and staff on activities and programs in support of ADA's mission during his tenure.

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. He not only has held many positions and prestigious roles with ADA, but Dr. Buse is also an active fund raiser in his community helping to fight for a cure.

As an endocrinologist, Dr. Buse also serves as Chief of the Endocrinology Division of the Department of Medicine at the University of North Carolina (UNC) School of Medicine in Chapel Hill. In addition, he is an active clinician with a UNC-based diabetes practice in Chapel Hill.

Dr. Buse's research efforts include serving as the Vice-Chair of National Institutes of Health's (NIH's) largest ever diabetes study called the ACCORD study. This clinical trial is aimed at determining optimal treatments for diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol in type 2 diabetes. Dr. Buse also serves as a co-investigator in the NIH's HEALTHY study which seeks to demonstrate that changing the school environment can be a catalyst for diabetes prevention in middle school children.

Dr. Buse received his bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Dartmouth College and his Medical and Doctoral degrees from Duke University. He completed his internship and residency in internal medicine and his fellowship in endocrinology at the University of Chicago.

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.
