As many of you know, I am pretty big fan of advocating for changes at the policy level. I strongly believe that majority of what we all advocate for, comes down to policy change. For example, better access to diabetes technologies will require state and federal policy changes to truly create the access that we need.
Next Thursday, the Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition (DPAC) will be holding its monthly Ask an Expert webinar series. This month’s expert is Tom Karlya. Most of you may already know who Tom is and what Tom has done for people with diabetes. You may also know Tom as the Diabetes Dad.
Tom will be speaking about Reegan’s Rule in North Carolina and how we can all use the success of Reegan’s Rule as a model of how to engage in state level diabetes advocacy.
I highly, highly recommend that you all join this webinar and learn from Tom on what we can do as advocates. If we truly want change, then we have to attack it from all angles, not just from a Federal perspective, but also from a state and local level as well.
I don’t ask for much, but when I do ask, it is because it is something that is extremely important.
So, please sign up for the webinar next Thursday, April 28 @ 12PM EST. If you are unable to attend live, there will be a replay link. Please comment below or ping me if you would like for me to send you the replay link once it is available.
