Currently nearly 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, and it is predicted that by 2050, one in three Americans will have the condition if steps aren’t taken to stem the tide. And while it’s been shown that low-cost community health programs can significantly reduce a person’s risk of the condition, federal funding levels for diabetes research and prevention have not kept pace with increases in prevalence, according to the American Diabetes Association.

To address the growing diabetes epidemic, the American Diabetes Association has set up a petition urging Congress to increase the money invested to stop diabetes. To add your voice to the chorus, sign the petition here.
