Diabetes Advocacy Orgs: 2012 Milestones and Plans for 2013

At the close of last year, we asked the top diabetes advocacy organizations and communities to share what they felt they’d accomplished in 2011, and what kinds of plans / goals / strategies they had in mind for 2012?

It only makes sense that we return to them this year with the same question: did they meet their own expectations for 2012? And what do they envision for continuing to help the D-community in 2013?

Below are the answers we received from their various leaders and spokespeople (presented in alphabetical order).

Another great year down, and headed exciting places for the next? Again, you be the judge…

2012: We made a great deal of progress this year, particularly on the prevention front. AADE was one of six organizations chosen by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help expand its National Diabetes Prevention Program, an evidence-based lifestyle change program designed to prevent type 2 diabetes. With this grant, we will be on the front lines of helping the millions of Americans who have pre-diabetes. More specifically, we will provide funding opportunities and resources to diabetes education programs that are interested in delivering these prevention services in their local communities.  AADE will also work with businesses and insurers on efforts to develop financial support for these classes and make diabetes prevention programming a reimbursable health benefit. Read more
