Join Me. Let’s Stop Diabetes!

The mission of the American Diabetes Association® is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

On April 7, 2016, Diabetes Advocates from across the country will make their voices heard during our Capitol Hill Advocacy Day! Unless we take action now, one in three Americans will be diagnosed with the disease by 2050. And with every diagnosis, another American faces terrible complications and even death. The American Diabetes Association urges Congress to make diabetes a priority. Will you join us and tell your members of Congress that diabetes must be stopped?   

  • Allocate $2.262 billion for NIH’s National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases

  • Provide $170.129 million for the CDC’s Division of Diabetes Translation

  • Support $25 million for the National Diabetes Prevention Program

The Association asks that you dedicate your Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr status/post to help spread the word about our advocacy efforts. By inviting your friends and family to participate we can ignite a dialogue about the importance of preventing, treating and curing diabetes.
