David Boren calls for diabetes awareness, treatment

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- University of Oklahoma President David Boren is calling for a $50-million center to improve the treatment of diabetes.

Boren has diabetes and has met with state, local and tribal officials about creating a center to coordinate OU's research, education and clinical care programs. He says clinics could be opened statewide.

Boren has Type 2 diabetes and was hospitalized last summer after suffering a severe reaction to an injection that was intended to relieve back pain.

The state Health Department says about 200,000 Oklahomans have the disease.
