Diabetes affects the lives of nearly 30 million children and adults in this country and another 86 million with prediabetes. If current trends continue, one in three children will face a future with diabetes. It's a tragedy that doesn't have to happen.
By working with Congress and State Legislators, we can stop the diabetes epidemic in America.
Read about our 2017 State and Federal Legislative and Regulatory Priorities and our 2016 Advocacy Accomplishments.
These priorities include legislative, regulatory and state work the Association does in the areas identified on this page.
Legal Advocacy is a core component of the Association's strategic plan goal to Raise Voice and Support People, igniting a movement to protect the rights of people with diabetes through an aggressive campaign that combats the stigma of diabetes and highlights the seriousness of the disease.
