September 2017 Edition

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

We look forward to seeing many of you on September 12 and 13 in Indianapolis for our Together 2 Goal® Diabetes Symposium, held in conjunction with the American Diabetes Association. One lucky attendee will win a set of boxing gloves signed by Sugar Ray Leonard, who helped us kick off the campaign.

If you would like to attend the Symposium, there is still time to register! Visit our website to view the agenda and register today. The J.W. Marriott, where the Symposium will be held, is fully booked for the evening of September 12, but there are plenty of downtown hotels near the Marriott.

If you are unable to attend, you can follow along with the meeting on Twitter using #AMGAIndy and #Together2Goal. We will also share content in future Goal Posts and on social media, so keep an eye out.

Questions about Together 2 Goal®? Please reach out to your Regional Liaison or email together2goal@amga.org.
