American Diabetes Association is beginning the process of setting legislative priorities for 2013, and would like community input! Proposed priorities will be discussed at the ADA Legislative Subcommittee meeting in October, followed by consideration by their Advocacy Committee, Executive Committee, and finally the Board of Directors.
Some of these priorities, such as diabetes research funding, tend to remain the same from year to year, but ADA will also consider new ideas on what legislative opportunities can best improve the lives of people with diabetes. They’re interested in knowing what new issues you think they should add, as well as what current areas they shouldn’t pursue. Below are the current priorities and an explanation of how the ADA priorities are reached. Add your 2 cents to the discussion and your input will be forwarded to ADA!
