Senate Committee Releases Funding For Important Health Funding Programs

Last week, the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee for Labor, Health and Human Services passed a funding bill supporting programs important to the Academy's mission. Nearly three-quarters of all health-care costs are attributable to chronic disease; many of which are preventable through proper diet and exercise. The committee allocated $280 million for Community Transformation Grants, an increase of $54 million from 2012, to help fund innovated prevention programs around the country.

The Diabetes Prevention Program, focusing on nutrition education and behavior change to fight diabetes, was allotted twice as much funding as last year for a total of $20 million. The bill also includes $30.7 billion for the National Institutes of Health; an increase of $100 million from fiscal year 2012. Before the President signs this bill, it must first pass the full Senate and full House.
