The DAA is diverse in scope, with our 29 members representing patient, professional and trade associations, other non-profit organizations, and corporations, all united to change the way diabetes is viewed and treated in America.
Each year, DAA members review the current policy landscape and come to consensus on a set of strategic priorities.
With 96 million adults in the U.S. with prediabetes, more diabetes prevention programs in community-based and virtual modalities are urgently needed.
There is a continual need to screen for prediabetes and diabetes, to identify adults who could benefit from diabetes prevention programs and find and offer treatment to those who have type 2 diabetes but don’t know it.
People with diabetes need equitable access to treatments for diabetes and obesity, diabetes self-management education, and medical nutrition therapy, along with access to specialist care when needed for diabetes complications.
The Congressionally mandated National Clinical Care Commission sent Congress a comprehensive report of recommendations in January 2022 that is a roadmap for what the Executive Branch and Congress must do to help stem the tide of diabetes in America.
