Description
 
Diabetes -- a chronic disease affecting one out of 12 adults in California -- is a growing epidemic that drains the health and economic well-being of families, employers, and communities. The annual health care and related costs of treating diabetes in California in 2012 were about $27.5 billion. However, the California Dept. of Public Healthäó»s spending on diabetes prevention has declined due to reductions in its federal funding. In FY 2012-13, California had the lowest per capita funding for diabetes prevention in the nation. One reason is that California does not provide any state funding for diabetes prevention. The Dept. of Public Health has not been able to expand its diabetes prevention to many counties that have a high prevalence of diabetes. This report recommends that state lawmakers fund a grants specialist position to focus on applying for federal and other grants to fight the growing epidemic of diabetes in California. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
