Advocacy

Students With Diabetes Advocacy Program

SWD Advocacy Program Overview

Advocacy is all about using your energy to impact a cause.  We see lots of advocacy activities in our society.  Those that are most effective are the ones that have a match of passion, purpose, and knowledgeable advocates.  Our goal at SWD is to empower young adults to engage in diabetes advocacy for a lifetime.

There are many ways to advocate and many causes within the large topic of diabetes, but there are far too few individuals willing to engage.  I hope you will join us by registering as an advocate, studying the basic information on the following pages, and reading the advocacy alerts.  Information arms us to bring about change.  I believe young adults have the skills, the passion, and the drive to lead change in diabetes!
