[IP] Conquer Diabetes Call-In Day

BIG NEWS! Today is National Conquer Diabetes Call-In Day!

Stop what you're doing and pick up the phone! Call your members of Congress
and urge them to dramatically increase funding for diabetes research and
programs - 202-224-3121.

We need your help today because Congress is currently working on the diabetes
budget for fiscal year 2003. Diabetes funding at the National Institutes of
Health, which conducts research, and the Centers for Disease Control, which
translates that research into practical uses for people with diabetes, is
seriously underfunded.

Each year, over 200,000 Americans die from diabetes and another one million
are diagnosed. Yet Congress is still not giving our leading doctors and
scientists the resources they need to find a cure. You can help change that

Pick up the phone and call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121. The
operator will transfer you to the offices of your members of Congress. You
don't need to be a policy expert, you just need to say that you are a
constituent and you want them to dramatically increase funding for diabetes
research and programs.

Forward this to your friends and family. The more people calling Congress
today, the greater impact it will make and the closer we will get to a cure
for diabetes!
Thanks for your efforts on behalf of people with diabetes.
