The American Diabetes Association Applauds Major Funding Increase for Diabetes

The American Diabetes Association applauds Congress and President Obama for enacting an omnibus spending bill that will boost funding for important diabetes research and prevention programs.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2016 increased discretionary funding for the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases to $1.818 billion, an increase of over $68 million compared to FY2015. This robust funding will allow the institute to expand promising research toward improved treatments and move us closer to a cure for diabetes.
