Engage

Coalition activities are open to individuals and organizations that want to be part of a collaboration to prevent and reduce diabetes and its complications. We celebrate the advocacy and passion of our members with the Sally Joy Leadership Award.

Sally Joy Award

In 2012, the Coalition recognized Sally Joy for her advocacy and passion promoting diabetes and kidney disease programs to improve the lives of people living with diabetes.

In honor of Sally's leadership efforts, DPAC, along with the American Diabetes Association (ADA), annually recognizes a deserving partner with the Sally Joy Leadership Award.

Do you know someone who demonstrates exceptional leadership and passion for diabetes prevention and/or self-management? If so, please consider honoring Sally Joy with a nomination for the Sally Joy Leadership Award.

You may submit your 2021 Sally Joy Leadership Award nominations online.

Please submit your nomination by Thursday, September 30th.
