Of Continuing Interest
- The U.S. Government spends US$1,700 per patient in AIDS research. It spends US$20 per patient on diabetes research. The American Diabetes Association is sponsoring a petition to President Clinton, urging that more be spent on diabetes. Their goal is to collect 250,000 signatures by January 1, 1998. To achieve that goal, they will need everyone's help. If you haven't signed the petition, please do so. And ask your friends and relatives to join in too.
