National Day of Action
October 2017 Edition

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

Mark your calendars for November 9 — our second annual National Day of Action is approaching!

On this day during National Diabetes Month, we encourage all campaign supporters to take an “action” to empower the nation to better manage diabetes. Last year, our National Day of Action reached more than four million Americans and we hope this year will have an even larger impact.

Here are a few ways for you to get involved on November 9:  

  • Sign the online pledge: Publicly commit to taking at least one "action" on November 9 by completing our online pledge. You can select from our sample "actions" — videos, online quizzes, webinars, and more — or brainstorm your own.
  • Watch our provider video: Together 2 Goal® is producing a new video — “6 Tips to Fine-Tune Your Diabetes Office Visits” — which addresses how providers can maximize the limited time they have with patients. Plan to screen the video with providers within your group on November 9.
  • Stream our Facebook Live, co-hosted with the American Diabetes Association (ADA): Plan to tune in to ADA’s Facebook page on November 9 for a chance to participate in a real-time discussion with a physician and a patient who will be discussing how to identify and address emotional and mental health aspects of living with diabetes. 

Check back on our website on November 1 for links to these and other actions you can take on our National Day of Action.
