Her primary areas of focus include state and federal policies related to Medicaid, primary prevention of type 2 diabetes and Affordable Care Act implementation. Krista earned her Juris Doctor degree from American University Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C., and her bachelor's degree in Speech Communication from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.<br /> <br /> Topic Description<br /> <br /> On March 2, 2014, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released two proposals to update the Nutrition Facts label found on most food packages in the United States. Since a healthful eating pattern is a key component of diabetes management and prevention, accurate and easily understandable food labels are essential in ensuring individuals with and at risk for diabetes are able to follow their individualized eating plans and achieve their daily nutrition goals.<br /> <br /> Krista will provide an overview of the changes being proposed by the FDA, focusing on those that may have the greatest impact on individuals with and at risk for diabetes. In addition, in this interview she will let consumers know how they can make their voices heard and tell the FDA what they like about the proposed changes—or how they can be improved. Comments are due to the FDA by Aug. 1, 2014.
