Meeting with Cole Urges Commitment to Diabetes Prevention Efforts

08/06/2016 - The Diabetes Advocacy Alliance spoke with Rep. Tom Cole, the chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, at an in-district meeting on August 5.

The group conveyed the importance of diabetes prevention efforts in the congressman's home state of Oklahoma, urging him to commit to those efforts, which would also allow RDNs to effectively do their jobs and improve the quality of life of their patients.

The Academy is a member of the alliance, whose public policies and legislative priorities can align with the Academy's, and was represented at the meeting by member Stephanie DeBerry, MS, RDN/LD.
