Welcome to Advocates In Action's National Team

A Message from Gina Gavlak, Chair,
National Advocacy Committee:

Step Out this Fall and continue our fight for people with diabetes on Capitol Hill, in the state house, and in the courthouse!

Thanks for your passion and commitment as a Diabetes Advocate! Every time you stand up and speak out you make a difference for people, like me, who are living with diabetes. In my thirty-plus years of living with this disease, I have realized that not only my experiences, but those of others with diabetes really fuel my passion to advocate to Stop Diabetes. As a diabetes program development coordinator at Lakewood Hospital, a Cleveland Clinic Hospital’s Diabetes and Endocrine Center, and a Nurse in the emergency department at MetroHealth Medical Center, these stories are shared with me every day.

As an Advocate, you know the importance of what we do and how each experience can bring new light to the diabetes epidemic. Together, we fight for funding for diabetes research and programs to prevent, manage and cure this terrible disease. We work to make affordable, quality health care available to everyone who struggles to manage their diabetes. And we protect those who face discrimination due to having this disease. We are responsible for telling our elected leaders our stories so they know why this is a disease that they cannot ignore!

Join our 2015 Advocates in Action National Step Out team and raise awareness about our advocacy work by sharing your story. Registering online is easy, and with your registration, you will receive a personal page a perfect place to answer the question “why do you walk”? With more than 100 Step Out events nationwide, you can walk and fundraise at an event close to you.

We look forward to walking with you at an event this fall!

You have two options to become part of the National Advocates in Action Step Out Team*:

  1. JOIN an existing Advocates in Action team: Click “JOIN A TEAM” above. Search for the team by team name or captain’s name and click JOIN TEAM. If you can't find the team or team caption you are wanting to join, check with your team captain for clarification. If there is no team already created for your event, then you can create your own local Advocates in Action Team. (See Option #2).

  2. START your own local Advocates in Action team: Click “CREATE A TEAM” above. Find your Step Out site, go to the event site and click "FORM A TEAM". Be sure to select Advocates in Action from the National Team drop-down menu when prompted. Then invite others to join your team!

*If you are an individual that would like to walk without a team, you still must create your own local Advocates in Action team. Please note that other individual Advocates may join your team once it is created.

Now you're ready to Step Out to Stop Diabetes! You must either join an existing team, or create your own local Advocates in Action team to be a part of the overall National Team.
