to Quality Diabetes Education Act of 2015 (H.R. 1726, S. 1345) favors the
interests of the pharmaceutical industry over the needs of people with diabetes. This
bill would turn certification as a diabetes educator—a certification offered by
a private trade group—into a legal requirement. This will be a a costly,
unnecessary obstacle for thousands of healthcare workers, and if passed, it would
leave thousands of people without diabetes services. Efforts to create mandatory
certification at the state level have been soundly defeated. Now we need to do
the same at the federal level.
share this Action Alert on social media and use the hashtag #DiabetesMiseducation, and send your
message to your sentators and representative today, urging them to vote NO on this terrible bill.
Please Vote NO on HR 1726 / S1345!
