The Legislature Needs to Hear Your Stories
The ADA is collecting a story bank to help our elected officials understand how important it is to make insulin more affordable. If you or someone you know has been impacted by the cost of insulin, please share your story. Your stories about how the price of insulin has adversely affected you and your family are powerful and needed!
