October 2020 Edition
The final campaign survey is open, and we want your feedback! We are thrilled with the successes all of you have achieved through Together 2 Goal® over the past four years and we want to ensure we carry your best practices into future campaigns. The average response time is only two minutes and your feedback is invaluable to our team. Your responses to the survey will allow us to:
  • Determine which planks were most adopted by campaign participants
  • Assess which campaign resources participants found the most valuable
  • Evaluate which campaign benefits resonated the most across diverse medical groups and health systems
  • Gauge the impact of COVID-19 on campaign participation
  • Measure interest in potential topics for the next campaign
Help us glean what worked best from this campaign so we can incorporate lessons learned into the next one! Participate before the survey closes on Oct. 9

Campaign Spotlight

The T2G Talk & Taste is back for our fifth and final T2G National Day of Action! On Nov. 5, we’re encouraging you to assemble your diabetes team for a final, celebratory T2G Talk & Taste. This year, we ask that your team comes together to watch a special T2G highlights video and celebrate your accomplishments throughout the campaign. All of the supporting materials can be found in our downloadable T2G Talk & Taste kit , which can be tailored to both virtual and in-person events. If you can’t hold your T2G Talk & Taste on Nov. 5, then aim for any other day that week! Consult with your diabetes team to determine your event date and format, then let us know when your team plans to participate— RSVP with your name, organization name, and T2G Talk & Taste event information. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating this year!
