Virginia Diabetes Council… A Partnership for Prevention and Education
In July of 2018, the Virginia Diabetes Council leadership decided it was time to re-imagine who they could be, and how they could best serve the diabetes communities of educators, professionals and patients across the Commonwealth.
Following a two-day, intensive retreat, the board developed a new mission statement:
Raise Awareness. Build collaboration. Promote Excellence in Education and Treatment.
Shortly following the retreat, the board leadership took the next step in creating their own future with a vision statement:
To become Virginia’s leading collaborative voice for diabetes awareness, education and treatment.
The goal of the Council was to be forward-thinking in their process, and to clearly define ways in which they could respond to the needs of their constituents in the future.
Closely following their vision is the Council’s identity statement:
The Virginia Diabetes Council is a volunteer-led diabetes awareness organization that advocates for diabetes prevention, management, and healthier lifestyle choices for all Virginians.
The final step in the re-imagining process was to develop a fresh, modern logo representing the organization of the future, and new web site, and newsletter.
It’s a great new day at the Virginia Diabetes Council!
