President announces climate change competition
Climate change is a real threat for those of us living in the Pacific Islands. Rising sea levels that erode beaches, ocean acidification that eats away coral reefs, and changes in rainfall and storm intensity all endanger our island way of life. To combat these and other results of climate change, President Obama announced a new Climate Action Champions competition this week. As many as 15 local or tribal governments will be recognized for their efforts to cut carbon pollution or prepare for the impacts of a changing climate. In addition, the designated Champions will receive technical assistance from the federal government to bolster their work. The deadline to apply is October 27.











How much Social Security do you have to look forward to?
Not everyone in the Northern Mariana Islands – or elsewhere in America – has access to the internet. So the Social Security Administration has decided to begin mailing hard-copies of Social Security Statements to those who do not have an online Social Security account. If you are reading the e-kilili, you obviously have an internet connection, but you may not have set up a secure my Social Security account that allows you to look at your statement online whenever you want. The statement is a valuable financial planning tool that gives you a record of your tax contributions and yearly earnings and estimates your future benefit. You can set up a my Social Security account here. And, if you decide not to, Social Security will be mailing you a hard-copy statement every five years, when you reach age 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, and 60. After age 60, you will receive a statement every year.











Improved screening is a first-line defense against diabetes
Diabetes care has improved steadily over the years, but so has evidence that intensive care has its own health risks. This points to the need for more effective screening so that persons in a pre-diabetic condition can make lifestyle changes or receive drugs that prevent or delay the full blown disease. For that reason, as a member of the House Diabetes Caucus I joined with 61 of my colleagues in the House of Representatives in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Sally Burwell, calling for broader screening guidelines. Right now, screening is only recommended for persons with hypertension. We think the federal guidelines should recommend screening for other risk factors, including age, being a member of a high-risk ethnic population, or having a first-degree relative with diabetes. This would be consistent with the recommendation of the American Diabetes Association. According to the CNMI Department of Public Health, one out of every two children born in the our islands aft
