Diabetes Commission Bill Passes Another Hurdle En Route to Passage


Thanks to the support of the Academy and our partners in the Diabetes Advocacy Alliance, today the full Energy and Commerce Committee unanimously passed H.R. 1192, the National Clinical Care Commission Act. It is critical that the momentum continue on this bill so that it is signed into law before the end of the year. This bill would give registered dietitian nutritionists a seat at the table to ensure that federal programs provide the most efficient and effective care for people with diabetes and related diseases.
