August 28, 2017: A Meeting with Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky

Updated: Aug 22, 2018

Today I had the pleasure of meeting with Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky. I am very happy to say that it was a very productive meeting.

I was able to share my concerns people living with diabetes have about the increase in costs with insurance deductibles, premiums and out of pocket expenses. We discussed the significant price increases in the cost of insulin and how that is affecting people living with diabetes. I asked her to have Congress require transparency from the pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies and third party payers. I believe if there is an even playing field, it is a start. I also asked her to continue our funding for the next fiscal year so that researchers can continue to develop technology that will enhance our lives and as always search for a cure. Thank you Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky
