The American Medical Association has launched a multiyear initiative to address type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, earmarking $6 million for the first year. AMA President Dr. Jeremy Lazarus noted that one-third of all American adults are expected to have type 2 diabetes by 2050, and African-American, Latino and Native American communities have higher rates of the disease. The AMA will work with the YMCA and the CDC to identify and help adults with higher-than-normal blood glucose levels who do not yet have diabetes.
