American Diabetes Association v United States Department of the Army

June 28, 2018

Amicus Curiae Brief On Behalf Of The Pediatric Diabetes Community

"The diabetes pediatric community strongly supports and urges the standing of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) in this case. The ADA is the most suitable organization to represent the best interests of children with diabetes in this case. The ADA has a widespread positive impact in the care and management of diabetes for children. In this case, the Army’s efforts regarding care for children with diabetes are not medically necessary or appropriate. These efforts discourage family access and participation by providing a limited scheme for child care which is unduly burdensome and medically inadequate. The Army requires families of children with diabetes to accommodate the Army rather than the Army accommodate the children, as is required by law. If the ADA does not have standing in this case, no other organization does."
