November 2019 Edition

The T2G National Day of Action is quickly approaching and our Plank Mentor videos are now available!

Last year for our National Day of Action, we introduced the concept of the T2G Talk & Taste. It was such a success that we are bringing it back again this year! On Nov. 7, we’re encouraging you to assemble your diabetes team for another T2G Talk & Taste. This year, we ask that you watch a brief video Q&A from one of our 11 Plank Mentors and discuss its application with your team. Everything you’ll need to host your event is included in our T2G Talk & Taste kit.

Send us a picture of your event with a completed reimbursement form and your team meal will be on us (up to $100). If you can’t hold your T2G Talk & Taste on Nov. 7, then aim for any other day that week and it will still count! It’s not too late to plan your event: RSVP today!

Campaign Spotlight

We are thrilled to share that the case studies from the T2G Innovator Track Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Cohort are now available! From May 2018 to May 2019, the 12 medical groups and health systems that participated in this Cohort explored how providers can better identify and manage CVD risk among their patients with Type 2 diabetes. Over the course of this initiative, participants saw improvements in all six Cohort measures using a variety of interventions. In the case studies, organizations provide detailed insight into their interventions, outcomes, and lessons learned.
