Diabetes Advocacy Alliance Comments to The White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health

July 15, 2022

"On behalf of the undersigned members of the Diabetes Advocacy Alliance (DAA), we are pleased to submit these comments for consideration and inclusion for the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. It is our desire for the Biden-Harris Administration to review and include our ideas in its policy recommendations before the September 2022 Conference.

Since 2010, the DAA has worked with legislators and policymakers to increase awareness of, and action on, the diabetes epidemic, and more recently, on the relationship of obesity to prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. The DAA’s members represent patient, professional and trade associations, other non-profit organizations, and corporations, all united to change the way diabetes is viewed and treated in America. We share a common goal of elevating diabetes and the obesity-diabetes connection on the national agenda so we may ultimately defeat this treatable, but also potentially deadly chronic disease."
