The Clinical Care Commission Report to Congress
The editors of Diabetes Care are pleased to present this special topic collection on "The National Clinical Care Commission Report to Congress: Recommendations to Better Leverage Federal Policies and Program."
The National Clinical Care Commission (NCCC) was a federal advisory committee charged with leveraging federal policies and programs to more effectively prevent and control diabetes. In January 2022, the NCCC issued its final report to Congress. That transformational report contained 39 specific recommendations, including 3 foundational recommendations, that addressed the necessity of an all-of-government approach to diabetes, health equity, and access to health care. In this six-article collection, the NCCC shares those recommendations.
You can also access a special episode of the Diabetes Care "On Air" Podcast, featuring co-hosts Alice Cheng and Michael Rickels, along with commission members Dr. Bill Herman, Dr. Dean Schillinger, and Dr. Paul Conlin. This episode delves into the foundational report and the specific recommendations of the NCCC. To listen, visit diabetesjournals.org/care/pages/diabetes_care_on_air.
