The Energy & Commerce Committee “Ordered to be Reported” H.R. 1192 – The National Diabetes Clinical Care Commission Act. Reported means sent to the full house for a vote. As you can see in the chronology to the right, things are moving fast. Now is the time to ask your congress member to vote for diabetes.
You can read AACE’s press release in response to the Energy and Commerce vote here. The bill seeks to coordinate the federal response to diabetes through a limited time commission. This commission is an approach that proved successful a generation ago, leading to trials that proved the value of tight control. Advances in diabetes medications and devices are an opportunity to be successful coordinating innovative diabetes care again.
Keep the momentum going. A bipartisan majority of the House has cosponsored the bill, ask them to vote.
