|Subject:||Resolution calling on Joint State Government Commission to provide an assessment of diabetes programs and diabetes related planning|
|In the very near future, Rep. Longietti and I, as co-chairs of the Diabetes Caucus, will be introducing a resolution calling on the Joint State Government Commission to provide an assessment of diabetes programs and diabetes related planning within Commonwealth state agencies, and to call on state agencies to develop goals and benchmarks to reduce the incidence of diabetes. The report will be submitted to the Majority and Minority Chairs of the PA Legislative Diabetes Caucus and the Human Services Committee on a biennial basis. The resolution will enable better collaboration and innovation among state agencies with a vested interest in containing the reach of the diabetes epidemic by directing them to develop a plan of action to reduce the economic burden of diabetes within their respective programs.
Please join me in cosponsoring this important piece of legislation.
