April 2017 Edition

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

Over the first year of the campaign, we've highlighted diabetes experts through presentations on our monthly webinars and resources in the Campaign Toolkit. We're continuing this tradition in the second year with a new resource: our campaign Goal-Getters!

Have you exemplified leadership in improving diabetes care? Has your organization displayed a commitment to the Together 2 Goal® campaign goal, driving measureable results among patients with Type 2 diabetes? If the answers are yes, your organization is what we call a Goal-Getter!

And in the Together 2 Goal® campaign, we share their successes - not only to celebrate them, but also to help spread best practices and lessons learned in diabetes management, empowering others across the country to tackle similar challenges and improve diabetes care through our campaign planks.

  • How Can I Learn from Goal-Getters? Our current Goal-Getters - Geisinger Health System and Premier Medical Associates - are available for download here. You can learn about the strategies and tactics to overcome barriers to diabetes management, as well as access contact information for the "head coach" should you have additional questions. Check back periodically for additional Goal-Getters!
  • How Can I Be a Goal-Getter? If you've motivated patients, changed a care process, or leveraged IT by implementing one of the campaign planks to improve diabetes care at your organization, tell us your story by completing the form available here. We've included a number of exploratory questions to help you along the way.
