I have had type 1 diabetes for 47 years and have many complications including severe visual impairment. the thought of a young child having to deal with this disease breaks my heart. they've made many improvements in controlling diabetes but they need to do more. they need to cure it. type 2 is affecting millions of americans and the medical costs in future years will be astronomical.

I wish them success now that money has been allocated but must ask, what expertise exists at Kent State to justify the expenditure?

This isn't another example of "pork barrel spending," is it?
