November 2020 Edition

The final T2G National Day of Action is almost upon us and the T2G Campaign Highlights Video is now available!

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. The kit includes:
  • Participation guide
  • Annotated PowerPoint presentation (includes discussion guide)
  • T2G highlights video – now available!
  • Staff invitation template
  • Certificate template (for staff recognition)

There’s still time to organize your own T2G Talk & Taste event, even if you can’t hold it on Nov. 5. Consult with your diabetes team to determine an event date and format that works for you, 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!
