Advocacy In Action
Take Action Today on TROA and DSMT
Earlier this year, we asked you to take action on the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act and the Expanding Access to Diabetes Self-Management Training Act – we need your help once again on these important bills! TROA and DSMT offer clinically- and cost-effective solutions to address obesity and diabetes, two major chronic diseases that cost our nation billions of dollars each year. Take action today!
Take Action Today on the Preventive Health Savings Act
Academy members play critical roles in programs across the country that prevent chronic disease and reduce health care costs, yet these important prevention strategies are not getting the recognition they deserve when it comes to cost savings. The Preventive Health Savings Act of 2019 would allow the Congressional Budget Office to more accurately reflect long-term cost-savings of preventive health initiatives that promote and maintain positive health and prevent disease and premature death. We need your help! Since this action alert opened on June 17, only 2.18 percent of Academy members have taken action on this issue. Thank you to the Affiliate PPCs and DPG PALs who have taken action! If you are a PPC or PAL who hasn’t taken action, we encourage you to take action today! Our goal is 100 percent participation among PPCs, PALs and policy leaders – lead by example and share the importance of taking action with your affiliates and DPGs.
