Diabetes Social Media Advocacy
This free social media platform allows posts of 140 characters or fewer. It’s a place to connect with people and to share news, encouragement, support, and often, smiles. Guided by the tagline “Simple questions, thought-provoking responses—strengthening the diabetes community one Tweet at a time,” the DSMA Twitter chat brings people together online for a fast-paced, one-hour moderated chat each week.
The online chat takes place Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. United States EST and is identified on Twitter with the hashtag #dsma.

Blue Fridays Initiative
Blue Fridays is an initiative to bring attention to World Diabetes Day and Diabetes Awareness Month, and to advocate and bring awareness for diabetes and the people living with it. Diabetes is more than a national issue; it’s a world epidemic. This year, I want to rally the diabetes community to celebrate World Diabetes Day and Diabetes Awareness Month by asking people to wear blue every Friday and on World Diabetes Day (November 14). Please visit the Blue Fridays facebook page to find out more information. You can also download the Blue Fridays flier (here)to hang up on your office, church or school.
