Hearing the Patient Voice

The Diabetes Leadership Council (DLC) in the US is holding an event where people with diabetes can log-in and speak to legislators.

For legislators it is a great way to find out some of the challenges people with diabetes face and for sufferers to explain what it means to have diabetes and the difficulties they face.

Advocacy Action: Could you host such an event on behalf of a diabetes patient group in your country? You could become a national champion in the eyes of many with the condition enabling them to talk direct to policy makers.
