ADA offers funding for CVD in patients with diabetes

February 18, 2017

The American Diabetes Association announced a new funding opportunity for researchers focusing on the cardiovascular disease in people with diabetes, according to a press release.

“People with diabetes are 1.7 times more likely to die from CVD than people without diabetes, and while we have tools and treatments available, increasing our knowledge about the intersection of diabetes and CVD is critical to achieving better outcomes,” Tamara Darsow, PhD, interim chief scientific and medical officer of ADA and vice president of research programs and outcomes research, said in the release. “The ADA is thrilled to be able to facilitate research with the potential to unlock new information and improve the lives of individuals with diabetes.”
