March 2017 Edition

Welcome to Goal Post, our monthly newsletter highlighting Together 2 Goal® and the latest campaign news and updates.

This month, we’re celebrating the first anniversary of the Together 2 Goal® campaign launch. As we reflect on our successes in the inaugural year, we realize it would not be possible without the participation of 150 AMGA members, the support of six corporate collaborators, and the engagement of 10 nonprofit partners and supporting organizations. Thank you for your ongoing collaboration!

Highlights of our first year included:

  • Launch event featuring world champion boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, attended by more than 700 AMGA members and supporters (pictured above)
  • Campaign enrollment and participation by 150 AMGA members committed to improving care for 1 million people with Type 2 diabetes by 2019
  • Campaign Toolkit release highlighting tools and resources from 10 participating AMGA members
  • Monthly campaign webinars led by experts on 12 different topics related to diabetes management
  • Quarterly data reporting by nearly two-thirds of campaign participants, showing improvements in A1c control, blood pressure control, medical attention for nephropathy, and the bundle of measures since the baseline report (note: the campaign will release improvement statistics in its next round of data reporting)
  • National Day of Action reaching 4 million Americans thanks to “actions” by more than 200 participants working to empower the nation to improve diabetes management
