Academy Urges Higher Priority for Nutrition Across NIDDK’s Strategic Plan

09/13/2021 - In recommendations submitted for consideration to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases' strategic plan, the Academy encouraged the institute to focus on the role of nutrition in each of its programmatic divisions – Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases; Kidney, Urologic and Hematologic Diseases – rather than having nutrition only under the Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition.

The Academy also urged NIDDK to focus on supporting health equity, supporting researchers from underrepresented backgrounds and collaborating to improve relevance and reach.
