National Day of Action
December 2018 Edition

This has been an eventful year for the Together 2 Goal® campaign and we want to extend a huge “Thank You!” to all of you who have worked hard to improve care for people with Type 2 diabetes. In 2018:

  • 2 Innovator Track Cohorts kicked off, mobilizing 22 participating medical groups and health systems to tackle cardiovascular disease and diabetic retinopathy
  • 7 campaign participants were recognized as T2G award winners for achievement and improvement in diabetes measures
  • 7 AMGA members spread lessons learned and best practices through T2G presentations at national conferences
  • 11 new organizations enrolled in the campaign, resulting in 2,640 FTE physicians joining this national effort
  • 23 partners, experts, and T2G participants presented on 17 T2G and Innovator Track webinars
  • 28 diabetes teams hosted a T2G Talk & Taste for this year’s National Day of Action, engaging over 200 providers in conversations on diabetes improvement

Together, our efforts have resulted in improved care for more than 750,000 people with Type 2 diabetes! We are excited to keep up the momentum in 2019 and look forward to continuing efforts to reach our shared goal of 1 million lives improved!
