Sign a petition for better health care

This morning an email was waiting for me in my inbox: The American Diabetes Association is sponsoring an online petition, asking for health care reform for diabetics.

The current health care system needs to be changed. Health care reform needs to ensure:
- People are not denied coverage because they have diabetes or required to pay higher premiums because of they have a chronic disease
- Health insurance covers basic diabetes needs
- Access to the tools to prevent diabetes
- An end to the racial and ethnic disparities in how diabetes affects Americans


Please sign this petition and take a stand for better health care for diabetics!
