Unless Congress and the Obama Administration agree on a plan to reduce the federal deficit by Friday, March 1, automatic, across-the-board spending cuts (sequestration) to federal programs will go in effect. This automatic reduction will affect diabetes research and prevention programs at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The American Diabetes Association is working to highlight the importance of research and prevention programs at the NIH and the CDC, and the serious impact across-the-board cuts will have on these critical initiatives. These dangerous cuts to the NIH & CDC will begin March 1st unless we act now!
