December 2020 Edition
As 2020 comes to a close, we can reflect on all that has happened this year. Amid unprecedented circumstances, you all took on new challenges, learned to adapt to an uncertain environment, and continued to provide exceptional diabetes care. We would like to say “thank you” to all of you who, despite many barriers, found success and continued to demonstrate excellence in diabetes care this year. In 2020:
  • 3 campaign participants shared best practices from the T2G Innovator Track Cardiovascular Disease Cohort at an AMGA Annual Conference virtual breakout session
  • 5 T2G award winners were recognized for high performance and innovation
  • 10 campaign participants published case studies highlighting interventions, best practices, and lesson learned from the T2G Innovator Track Eye Care Cohort
  • 10 medical groups and health systems successfully completed participation in the T2G Diabetes Bundle Collaborative, resulting in 8,000 additional patients under control for the bundle measure
  • 15 partners, experts, and T2G participants presented on 11 T2G webinars
  • 20 T2G participating groups held in-person and virtual T2G Talk & Taste events for this year’s National Day of Action, engaging 200 sites in campaign celebrations
We are thrilled with all that we have collectively accomplished through the campaign to date, and we look forward to finishing strong in 2021!
