Date:5/19/2013

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 19, 2013

At a May 6th, 2013 meeting organized by the National Council of Asian Pacific Physicians (NCAPIP), the Pacific Chronic Disease Coalition (PCDC), a council of the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), presented a newly published assessment on the status of health systems, diabetes, and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in the U.S. Associated Pacific Islands (USAPI).

Nia Aitaoto, PhD, an NACDD contractor and co-author of the assessment, remarked: "To address these critical problems, we need to partner with a national physician organization like NCAPIP to bring these recommendations to the national level." Dr. Richard M. Trinidad, a physician working in the USAPI added, "Diabetes is in a state of emergency here in the Pacific.
