Diabetes advocacy can learn from the great philosopher, Nigel Tufnel, who offered this sage observation, “Well, it's one louder, isn't it?”
Worse, in the current policy environment the squeaky wheel is going to get cut less, the other are going to get slaughtered. Diabetes needs to turn it up. We can't let them just move on after checking the diabetes box. So we to turn up the advocacy volume to help keep attention and accountability on diabetes.
But, I hear you say, “Just taking care of diabetes is a time major attention already, advocacy is just more.”
No kidding. So advocacy needs to be easy. Click simple. OK, it will be. I am proud to partner with Christel in creating the Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition (DPAC.) Join us.
DPAC will keep track of issues, opportunities, and how to contact officials and make it easy to advocate.
Be one louder.
