UF diabetes and aging study recognized by U.S. Senator

Bill NelsonWASHINGTON D.C. — U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, D-FL, took note of a recent UF study authored by affiliate diabetes investigator Todd Manini, Ph.D., of the UF Institute on Aging, which highlights a link between sitting and risk for diabetes. “We must continue funding groundbreaking research like that at the University of Florida and promoting the kinds of lifestyle changes that will reduce the risks of diseases like diabetes in old age,” he said in a recent statement on the Senate Floor.

We are proud of the accomplishments and collaboration among diabetes-affiliated researchers at UF and the implications of continuing to finding new ways of preventing, treating and reversing manifestations of the disease, which collectively impact nearly ten-percent (10%) of the entire U.S. population.
