Good news, there is a new CEO for the American Diabetes Association and he is, well…a diabetic (though he still calls it pre-diabetes) Kevin Hagan's family history of the disease made him interested in going from running "Feed the Children" to the ADA in February of this year.
DiaTribe did a good interview with him and you can read it here. http://diatribe.org/new-face-ada?utm_source=d...
While he is not all familiar with what he is getting into, he has some interesting ideas I'm sure that will shift and change as he gets more involved. This is our chance to let him know what we would like to see come from the ADA and how the money can be spent that he is going to raise. I know I am not a fan of the ADA overall, but it does have a place in it all. Maybe the new blood will inspire us to also be involved and get one of the original voices for diabetes to get caught up with the times.
I plan to write a letter welcoming him in, offering some ideas based on my experiences with the ADA and encourage him with support.
