Subject: Next Step for Special Diabetes Programs

Dear ,

Good news! Thanks to the ongoing support of Diabetes Advocates like you,
yesterday the U.S. House of Representatives voted 355-59 in support of a
Medicare package that included a two-year extension of the Special
Diabetes
Programs. This is a great step, but we’re not done yet!

The Medicare package will be voted on in the Senate tomorrow, so we
need to keep
up the pressure. Please send a letter to your Senators asking them to
vote in
favor of the Medicare package that includes a two-year extension of the
Special
Diabetes Programs at the National Institutes of Health and the Indian
Health
Service.

Thank you for your tireless efforts this week asking Congress to help
us change
the future of diabetes. Please ask your Senators to fight diabetes by
letting
this vote happen and supporting the Medicare package that includes a
two-year
extension of the Special Diabetes Programs. Click on Take Action Now to
send
your letter.

SDPI Reauthorization Update

While those of you at the meeting are hearing this in person, I
wanted to make
sure those of you not at the meeting know that today is an important
day for
SDPI Reauthorization – see below

Forward to a Friend

Dear  ,

We mentioned this would be a busy week and we have just found out that
the House
of Representatives is expected to vote on the extension of the Special
Diabetes
Programs tomorrow, June 24th, as part of the Medicare package.

As you know, this legislation will extend vitally important funding
for
research
on type 1 diabetes and funding for research, treatment and prevention
programs
for Native Americans populations who are affected by diabetes in
disproportionate numbers. The bill will come up under a “suspension of
the
rules”, a procedure intended to speed up the process and move the
legislation
forward.  It also means that two-thirds of the Members need to vote
for
the bill
for it to pass.

Many of you have already written your Members of Congress on this
issue, but
your voice needs to be heard again!

Help us get closer to a cure! Click on Take Action Now to urge Del.
Norton to
vote in favor of the two year extension of the Special Diabetes
Programs.

Take Action Now!

Please forward this information to all program staff attending the
June
Grantee Meeting next week!

Dear Grantees:

We are really looking forward to spending some time with you next
week
at the SDPI Demonstration Projects Grantee Meeting, Year 4 Meeting 2.
Here are a few quick miscellaneous notes to assist you in being
prepared
before you get here.

*    An updated agenda is attached.  Please note that though the
content of the meeting hasn’t changed much, the schedule is different
than previous drafts of the agenda.  Please plan accordingly.

*    In order to get the most out of the Semi-Annual Progress Report
presentation, please review the progress report in detail in the days
prior to the meeting.  Also, please print your own copy of the
General
Progress Report to bring to the meeting so you can easily follow
along
with the presentation.  You can download it from the CC website,
under
Publications on the left navigation bar.  You can also find your
Grantee-Specific Progress Report at the same location.  There will be
ample time for questions and comments following the presentation, so
please make a note of anything you want answered.

*    The continuation application and carry-over issues will be
discussed at this meeting.  Please come prepared with your questions
on
these two issues.

*    Meals reminder: A hot lunch will be provided on Thursday.  On
Wednesday, you are on your own for lunch before the meeting and only
beverages will be provided during the afternoon break.  The bus
leaves
the hotel at 12:00 p.m., so please plan to eat before then.  Please
also
plan to bring your own morning and afternoon snacks for both days if
desired.

*    Gamma grantees’ regular Tuesday data submission is still due the
week of the grantee meeting; however you can send in your electronic
submission on any day of that week.

*    Weather for the week is predicted to be in the mid-to-high 80s,
dry and sunny.

*    Though there is no special evening bus to an area mall just for
grantees this meeting, the hotel runs a free shuttle to the nearby
Northfield Mall.  A shuttle schedule will be provided by the hotel at
check-in.

Safe travels, and we look forward to seeing you next week!

Alisa
