Urgency – #Vote4DM and #DOCasksFDA.
Also, if you’d like to contribute your voice and share your dream for the future of diabetes, do it. Do it via video, if you’re so inclined, like so many others have done.

Also, the Strip Safely team is bringing about a new advocacy initiative, using Twitter to target our legislators. As the campaign tagline says, “We voted them into office. Tell them to #Vote4DM.” There are three diabetes bills that are currently in play up on Capitol Hill, and by visiting the Twitter page for Strip Safely, you’ll see some customized messaging all ready to go for your specific representatives. For more information on the bills on tap and how you can raise your voice, CLICK HERE (damn it – that all caps button is my best friend these days).
Thank you, as always, for being such a crucial part of the diabetes community. This whole thing would fall flat without you. (SERIOUSLY.)
