Dear Council Members,
For my first message as Chair of the Virginia Diabetes Council, I would
like to reflect on the year past as a Council, while focusing on the way forward. I am thankful for the leaders who have gone before me and would like to express my appreciation to Rhonda Keith, Past Chair, for her commitment over the past 2 years. Additionally, I would like to recognize the commitment and support of Mike Barrett, past Secretary, Gary Effron, current Treasurer and Kathy Gold and Lana King for their continued support.
In looking forward to our future, I recognize that, as a Council, we have many challenges to face. With all the changes in the economy and healthcare, we have to work smarter and strategize to achieve our mission and goals. We must endeavor to increase public awareness and understanding of health and disease in order to provide measurable outcomes at both the State and local levels. Growth and progress are often times heralded by change. I urge all of you to embrace the changes and the opportunities they bring while actively questioning how we can flourish as a Council. The most effective way to challenge yourself and your fellow healthcare professionals is to exercise your voice as a Council Member. Consider taking up a leadership position, as we have many open, to support the Council and shape the future of diabetes education and healthcare. As of today, we have Chair-Elect and Secretary Positions to fill.
In addition to roles with the Council as a leader, we must all consider other available opportunities. Upon review of our Diabetes State Plan, we have completed some great objectives but have many that are outstanding. For example, our March 2008 goal of creating a marketing plan “to continually recruit and engage a diverse statewide membership representing individuals and coalitions concerned about diabetes”, has not been started. The future of the council lies within each individual member. By taking an active and engaged role in council events, we can enact critical and positive change in diabetes education, awareness, and healthcare. I am excited for what this year holds and ready to tackle these challenges as a team.
I look forward to seeing everyone November 8th!
