    They are not shutting down; they are shifting focus. Over the last decade new information has changed what we know about diabetes from what most have assumed to be true. Much of what has been accepted as “common knowledge” has been found to be not only untrue, but hurtful. I salute their choice to pause, re-evaluate and choose which direction to go.

    Actually, it did not shut down at all. Might want to double check, but things are much less dire than the letter reprinted here suggests. They just needed to pull back on patient programs until sponsorship ramps up and needed to inform those that anticipate the same number of patient programs. I’m fairly sure you will be hearing from them to revise this announcement, which is not quite factual and could be detrimental? I’m assuming you do want to see the Institute continue…not sure this is helpful?
