    Now, more than ever, people living with diabetes need to come together to stand up for effective diabetes policy. Elected officials and regulatory agencies in federal and state governments affect our access to safe diabetes management. As patients and constituents, our voices need to be an ongoing part of the policy conversation. Diabetes advocacy is like diabetes care; both are long-term processes with no quick fixes.

    Diabetes care is not "once and done," our advocacy can’t be either. Building on the strength of 2014 Advocacy campaigns; the meter guidance docket, StripSafely, #Vote4DM, MDDS, #DOCasksFDA, and more, we have created the Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition (DPAC).

    DPAC will make it easy to keep policy makers' attention on people with diabetes. DPAC will keep track of issues, opportunities and, when registered, how to contact officials. We will make it easy to advocate while giving you the opportunity to add your own story.

    Excellent initiative. We need something like this in the Great White North.
