In 2012 AADE Advocacy will continue to take the message out to the membership thanks to grants
from our industry partners.
AADE is hosting (sponsored by Lifescan, Inc. and Novo Nordisk) an advocacy day in Atlanta, GA on
January 26th to train and educate our member advocates and key folks in the southern region (TX,
OK, LA, AR, MS, AL, TN, GA, FL, SC, NC, VA, WVA, MD, and DE) on the licensure effort and advocating
at the state level. If you live in one of these states and have a strong interest in grassroots
advocacy please contact us @
firstname.lastname@example.org by January 11, 2012. There is no
charge for this meeting but space is limited, by state and total attendance, so please inquire as
soon as possible.
We will also hold an all-inclusive two-day advocacy training for AADEs state legislative
coordinators (SLCs). This two-day training is designed to build a network of leaders for diabetes
advocacy on the federal and state level through training, workshops and personal visits with
Members of Congress. The event will be held on April 16th and 17th in Washington, DC. If you are
your states SLC or need to know the guidelines please contact James Specker, AADE Advocacy Manager
email@example.com. Complete sponsor list will be
announced early 2012.
