There’s still time. We currently have three Action Alerts open. As we are nearing the end of this legislative session, we encourage you to take action on the following (if you have not already done so): 1. Preventing Diabetes in Medicare Act, (H.R. 3124/S. 1299) – National Diabetes month is ending in a few days but there is still time to take action. 2. Nutrition Education Programs in the Farm Bill 3. Treat and Reduce Obesity Act, H.R. 1953/S.830 – More co-sponsors have been added to the bill. It’s not too late to contact your senator and representative and ask them for their support. Important Congressional Issues Require Your Action! As a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, please urge your policymakers to support legislation that protects and values nutrition services in areas of prevention and treatment (including treatment and reduction of obesity and diabetes prevention) and in the role of nutrition education as highlighted in the Farm Bill.It is important for members of Congress to hear from their constituency. As vital decisions are made regarding health care in the upcoming weeks, the voice of every member is critical.
