    Program Helps People With Diabetes Become Mentors

    July 2006

    Are you interested in helping other people with diabetes? Would you like to share your own experiences to help others learn how to manage their blood glucose and improve their health? If your answer is yes, than you may be interested in taking part in a program called A1c Champions.
    Sponsored by insulin maker Sanofi-Aventis, the A1c Champions program recruits people with diabetes from across the country to give hour-long presentations to diabetes support groups. The program provides the structure and materials for the presentations and trains the A1c Champions to give them. Potential A1c Champions must be able to attend an initial 2 ½-day training session and give two presentations a month. In return, they receive a stipend and travel expenses. To be eligible, you must have Type 2 diabetes, use insulin, and have an HbA1c level of less than 7%. If you’re interested and think you may qualify, you can call the toll-free number (866) 741-7047 to learn more about the program.
