This week, we’d like to direct your attention to this post at http://closeconcerns.typepad.com entitled “Squeezed Again: Political Leadership Needed to Reverse Budget Trends in Diabetes.” It discusses the amount of funding earmarked for diabetes research and wellness programs in President Bush’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2008, and whether diabetes has received its “fair share.”

This post is written by James S. Hirsch, a principal at the diabetes consulting firm Close Concerns who lives with Type 1 diabetes. He is also the author of the book Cheating Destiny: Life With Diabetes, America’s Biggest Epidemic.
