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.
