Access to Quality Diabetes Education Act of 2015 (HR 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.
will be 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.

message to your senators and representative today, urging them to vote NO on
this terrible bill.
