We need to make our voice heard on diabetes prevention. As a participant or supporter, everyone can play a part in talking about preventing type 2 diabetes.
Together we can cut the risk of type 2 diabetes in half and reduce health care costs through prevention! What can you do?
- Raise awareness with our doctors about prediabetes, encouraging them to refer to the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program
- Share information with Rep. John Carney about the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Act (see how below)
- Tell your friends and family to participate in the Diabetes Prevention Program
- Encourage our employers to provide the Diabetes Prevention Program as a covered benefit
IT’S TIME TO GET OUR VOICES HEARD!
CLICK HERE to send at letter to Representative John Carney asking him to hold an official hearing on diabetes on Capitol Hill in November. This would make our voices heard and promote the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Act of 2015 (S. 1131/H.R. 2102) – a Y legislative priority.
This will take you less than 2 minutes to complete and as few as 10 letters can get the issue noticed!
THANKS for your continued support!
