Support diabetes prevention for our nation's seniors
Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent and someone who believes we need to solve both our nation's diabetes epidemic and our current fiscal crisis, I stand with the American Diabetes Association (Association) in urging you to support the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Act of 2013 (S. 452/H.R. 962). The legislation will provide coverage for the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP), a low-cost, evidence-based diabetes prevention program, for our nation's seniors.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
