National Day of Action

National Day of ActionAMGA Foundation launched its National Day of Action concept during its first Chronic Care Challenge campaign, Measure Up/Pressure Down®, and will continue the observance as part of the Together 2 Goal® campaign.

On one day during National Diabetes Month each November, we will encourage all Together 2 Goal® supporters to take an “action” to empower the nation to better manage diabetes.

Our inaugural National Day of Action for diabetes will be held on Thursday, November 3, 2016. Together 2 Goal® will lead two “actions” that participating AMGA members, non-profit partners and supporting organizations, corporate collaborators, and the general public can join:

  • Online pledge: Organizations and individuals can publicly commit to taking at least one “action” on November 3 by completing our online pledge. You can select from our sample “actions”—from getting active to educating employees—or brainstorm your own based on your audience, capabilities, and resources!

  • Twitter chat: Together 2 Goal® will co-host a Twitter chat about diabetes with our newest partner, Diabetes Hands Foundation, on November 3, 2-3 pm Eastern. Organizations and individuals are encouraged to join the conversation using #T2Gchat on Twitter. One lucky participant will win a boxing glove signed by world champion boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, who was the keynote speaker at our campaign launch event in March 2016!
