Advocacy Action Center News

The AADE Advocacy Action Center provides federal and state legislative information related to diabetes education, the National Diabetes Prevention Program, medical nutrition therapy, and diabetes self-management training/education. Get involved by staying informed and taking action!
In May of 2014, AADE Advocates met with Members of Congress in Washington, D.C. to discuss the importance of quality diabetes education and why they should cosponsor the Access to Quality Diabetes Education Acts. AADE also recognized Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) as the 2013 AADE Legislative Champion.
