The A of DSMA – Focusing on Advocacy

On November 2, 2011 by Cherise Shockley

We had another great chat tonight.  Thank you all for participating and sharing your thoughts on Advocacy.  The Diabetes Community has a lot to say when it comes to advocating for people with diabetes (PWD).  I loved this chat!


Q1. Why do you advocate for diabetes or people living with diabetes?

Q2. Do you think we advocate enough? How can we do it better? What are some avenues we can advocate for PWDs ?

Q3. Is working with an organization the way to increase advocacy? If not, what is a way to do it more effectively?

Q4. Is partnering with a company a solution? Yes or no-explain

Q5. What does Diabetes Awareness Month and World Diabetes Day mean to you? What would you like the public to know about diabetes?
