Advocacy vs. Lobbying- Understanding the Difference and the Importance
Grassroots advocacy and lobbying are not the same thing. Advocacy is generally defined as arguing in favor of a cause or idea. Advocacy is about having a conversation with leaders, legislators, and within communities. In our case, we participate in advocacy initiatives related to diabetes.
Happenings in AADE’s Diabetes Education Accreditation Program (DEAP)
We are wrapping up a busy year for DEAP and now have over 850 accredited programs with over 2100 sites delivering diabetes education. Our online application system is being updated so we will be launching a newer, more flexible and user-friendly version in 2019.
