Carson Statement on Diabetes Awareness Month
Washington, D.C. – “Diabetes is a debilitating and sometimes deadly disease that has adversely affected millions of American families. Therefore, it is extremely important that we all do our part to raise awareness about this serious disease and work to educate our citizenry on preventative and mitigating steps they can take to ward off and forestall diabetes.
“Over the last half-century, significant advances have been made in the field of diabetes treatments. However, with over 20 million Americans suffering from the disease, it is vitally important that we continue to highlight and support initiatives that bring attention to this important health issue.”
