Action Alert

S.539/H.R.1074 National Diabetes Clinical Care Commission Act

The Academy needs all members to support the National Diabetes Clinical Care Commission Act (S.539/H.R. 1074).  These bills solve the problem of dispersed, uncoordinated federal entities working on diabetes issues and establishes a commission to make recommendations for better coordination to leverage federal programs for people with diabetes and pre-diabetes.  The commission, which will include clinical dietitians and other expert practitioners, would also determine how the government could support clinicians in providing high quality care to people with diabetes.

Please ask your Senator and Representative to support the National Diabetes Clinical Care Commission Act (S.539/H.R. 1074). 

Take two minutes and send a note to your members of Congress.  Take Action Today! 

If you are not a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, please still reach out to your legislator regarding this important issue.  To find your legislators, you can visit: http://www.capitol.tn.gov/legislators/
