Help Stop The Diabetes Epidemic

Diabetes is one of Americans' leading killers and the number one cause of kidney failure, non-traumatic lower limb amputations, and new cases of blindness among adults in the US. And the epidemic is growing quickly – if we don't act soon, one in three Americans will have diabetes by 2050.

If we hope to stop the diabetes epidemic, we must advance research, support prevention programs and fight against discrimination.

Let your Members of Congress know that stopping diabetes is one of your top priorities – and it should be one of theirs, too. Fill out the fields below to send your Members of Congress a message today.

Please take a moment to personalize your letter to explain the impact diabetes has had on your life. Stories always make a better case than statistics, and personalized e-mails will have an even greater impact than form e-mails. Personalizing your letter is extremely important!

Support funding for critical diabetes programs

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent, I stand with the American Diabetes Association in asking you to support funding for critical diabetes research and prevention programs. Programs like those at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are essential to fighting diabetes and bringing down the growing costs of diabetes and its complications.





Again, I hope you will demonstrate your support for your constituents with diabetes by supporting funding for vital diabetes research and prevention programs at the CDC and NIH. With mortality and prevalence increasing at an alarming rate, the diabetes epidemic demands immediate attention.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
