Advocacy Update with Peggy Kruckemeyer

in ,

The Special Diabetes Program got patched again!  Congress included funding for the Special Diabetes Program in the latest Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government.  This patch through May 22, 2020 will allow critical research to continue moving us closer to cures for T1D.  Since October 1, 2019, Congress has funded the SDP to the tune of $97milllion.  We are hopeful that the program will be fully funded when Congress passes a budget.
