Amy Ohmer is the recipient of the 2018 Sally Joy Diabetes Leadership Award.

Amy Ohmer has been a leader and advocate within the diabetes community for several years. Inspired by the resilience of her daughters fighting the disease she has been an essential part of our diabetes community in Michigan.

Most recently, Ms. Ohmer has been marching on Washington to fight on behalf of people living with diabetes on topics such as insulin affordability. She also goes above and beyond to attain an audience with local state representatives to continue to push an agenda for people living with Diabetes.

For several years, she has been leading and collaborating with community groups at the University of Michigan. Even going as far as educating others on the proper use of glucagon in emergencies. Putting her daughters through ADA Camp Midicha, Amy is a big part of the Midicha community and continues to be a great resource for friends and other families looking for advice and sharing her work to inspire others.

This award, presented jointly by the Michigan Diabetes Partners in Action Coalition (DPAC) and the American Diabetes Association, is given annually to those demonstrating passion for diabetes care and prevention. DPAC again congratulates Amy on receiving this award.
