IDS Monthly Survey: May 2018
LAST MONTH’S SURVEY QUESTION:
In last month’s edition of Diabetes Bites we asked you to share how the Trump political environment has affected your health.
|Hmmm… Overall, 49% report being worse off, and 2% report being better off. Given that fixing America’s health care system was one of the pillars of the President’s campaign… well… you can do the math.|
THIS MONTH’S NEW SURVEY QUESTION:
This month, along the lines of my Think Like A Pancreas blog, we would like to know:
What do you think about the government’s role in furthering the treatment of medical conditions like diabetes?
- Stringent government regulation is ESSENTIAL for ensuring that only safe, effective treatments are made available. Protect the consumer!
- The government needs to get out of the way and allow companies to develop & market new products and devices. Let consumers make their own choices!
- Much better collaboration needs to exist between government and industry.
