2016 Public Policy Forum
AADE held its annual Public Policy Forum on May 13-14 in Rosemont, IL. In the past, this event has been held in Washington, DC with a special focus on the promotion and advancement of the federal legislative agenda. However, this year, 70 attendees representing 28 states convened as a network of key stakeholders who are experts and advocate on behalf of their profession, persons with diabetes, and relevant diabetes-related legislative and regulatory issues.
Watch video clips from the Forum on the Advocacy website. Visit the AADE Advocacy Forum to access and download slide decks, presentation resources, and legislative outreach materials.
