Diabetes Advocacy


Self Advocacy The Self Advocacy sub-category is intended for topics like: talking with your doctor, finding good health care providers, advocating to get our diabetes-related needs and rights respected at school and work, communicating with insurance companies to get our medical needs covered, and how to talk with friends and family members about our diabetes.
Public Advocacy The Public Advocacy sub-category is intended for conversations about social and political advocacy for people with diabetes. This includes lobbying for better Medicare coverage of diabetes-related medications and supplies, working against diabetes-related stigma and discrimination, encouraging FDA and other regulatory organizations to fast-track diabetes-related decisions, and more.
