I’ve decided that I want to become more of an advocate, especially here in Kansas City. It is estimated that there are around 250,000 diabetics in the Kansas City metro area and there just seems to be a roaring silence about it. About the only time anything is heard about diabetes is during National Diabetes Month every November. And while that is good, diabetes just doesn’t take the other 11 months off.
But how do I accomplish that? I have no idea outside of cold-calling various organizations and hospitals. I’ve been talking with one clinic off and on since December, but things just don’t seem to be moving very quickly, if at all.
How can I get started? I know I can blog more, but I’m just not sure if I’ll actually be able to do more than one a week or so. I am much better at face-to-face than electronic.
I would so greatly appreciate it if some of the very talented members of the DOC could help me out!
I need input, ideas, dirty tricks!
