The Special Diabetes Program (SDP) must be renewed by Congress before funding expires on September 30. SDP has delivered life-changing therapies allowing many more Americans to live longer, healthier lives. Because of SDP, we’ve seen better treatments, advances in prevention studies, and research moving us closer to a cure.
Just recently, two groundbreaking SDP-funded trials underscored the importance of this federal program—including a trial that delayed the diagnosis of type 1 diabetes by TWO years in high-risk individuals, and an SDP-funded study of an artificial pancreas system that improved glucose management! Additionally, a recent report showed that SDP has contributed to a HUGE cost savings for Medicare because of reduced kidney disease rates. But this progress is threatened: SDP expires in less than a month, so we need to make sure Congress takes action to renew the program SOON.
Please support the renewal of this critical program by contacting your legislators today using the form below.
