Beating Type 2 Diabetes: Recommendations for Federal Policy Reform
Across the United States, more than 29 million people have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, at a cost of more than $245 billion per year. Now is the time for action to turn the tide on the type 2 diabetes epidemic and the federal government has key roles to play in this fight.
In this Web Forum, experts at the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation at Harvard Law School will outline the important steps that can be taken at the federal level, to both prevent new type 2 diabetes diagnoses and ensure that people living with diabetes receive the critical care and services they need. From evidence-based enhancement of services covered by health insurance to smart investment in child nutrition, we can urge our federal government to make the changes that matter when it comes to diabetes prevention and management.
Please join us to learn what critical changes need to be made in federal policy, and how you can be a part of the change.
