Facing Tough Times, the ADA Cuts Its Workforce by 10 Percent
Responding to a slowdown in fundraising and cuts in federal funding of diabetes research, the Alexandra, Virginia-based American Diabetes Association has eliminated 86 staff positions, about 10 percent of its workforce.
The cutback involves layoffs and the elimination of vacant positions that the ADA will no longer seek to fill. The nonprofit association, founded by a group of doctors in 1940, also closed two branch offices in New England, one in Portland, Maine, and the other in Burlington, Vermont. The ADA has stated that it will continue to provide limited programs for people with diabetes in those communities.Click Here To View Or Post Comments
