Advocacy is the act or process of helping others. Our collective goal is to see that diabetes is cured and that until that time, that people with diabetes live as healthy and rich a life as possible. We each work to achieve that goal in different ways. You can help or find help through the following groups or activities:
- ADA's Advocacy Center offers information about federal and state legislation that needs your support.
- Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition (DPAC) makes it easy to keep policy makers' attention on people with diabete..
- JDRF Advocates works to gain funding for diabetes research and to pass laws to help people living with diabetes.
- The IDF's Unite for Diabetes campaign succeeded in getting a UN Resolution on Diabetes passed and continues to work to raise global awareness of diabetes and the need to work for a cure.
