Official Title

To amend the Public Health Service Act to authorize grants to provide treatment for diabetes in minority communities.

Summary

Minority Diabetes Initiative Act - Amends the Public Health Service Act to allow the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to make grants to public and nonprofit private health care providers to provide treatment for diabetes in minority communities. Requires the Secretary to ensure that such grants cover a variety of diabetes-related health care services, including routine care for diabetic patients, public education on diabetes prevention and control, eye care, foot care, and treatment for kidney disease and other complications of diabetes.
    We need to revisit this bill and actually make changes that promote more diabetes prevention programs. Get on top of this and revise this bill! We’re watching!
