Diabetes By The Numbers (Part 3): Christel Marchand Aprigliano and DPAC.

Time now for the third and final part of my conversation with Christel Marchand Aprigliano. If you haven’t yet listened to the first two parts of our chat, please go back after this episode and listen to them, because they are well worth your time.

In this episode, we talk about Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition, or DPAC. Christel and Bennet Dunlap started DPAC as a way to help amplify the voice of the patient to elected officials and policy makers. They provide a slew of tools that empower friends, family, and fellow advocates to take action on a number of diabetes-centric issues. Often, in less than one minute.

Note: I volunteered with DPAC in 2016, and plan to do so again in 2017.
Also, I should mention that this interview was recorded after the November 2016 election, but prior to the beginning of the 115th U.S. Congress in 2017.

Thanks so much to Christel for sitting down for this conversation. Enjoy, and get your advocacy on!
