To be presented during the November 9, 2023 DPAC Meeting 

In 2012, the Diabetes Partners in Action Coalition (DPAC), along with the American Diabetes Association (ADA), recognized DPAC member Sally Joy for her advocacy and passion promoting diabetes and kidney disease programs to improve the lives of people living with diabetes. Despite Sally’s passing in 2020, we continue to honor her legacy and leadership efforts.  DPAC and ADA annually recognize a deserving individual with the Sally Joy Leadership Award who is continuing Sally’s efforts to bring awareness to prediabetes, diabetes and kidney disease and promote efforts to reduce risks for complications. 

Do you know someone who demonstrates exceptional leadership and passion for diabetes prevention and/or self-management? Consider areas of outstanding work in community, patient or professional education, advocacy, diabetes resources development, or volunteerism. The nominee need not work solely in diabetes-related services nor be affiliated with DPAC or ADA.

DPAC is now accepting nominations for the 2023 award. Please submit your nomination by Friday, October 6th.
