The DAA recognizes that addressing prevention and management of chronic disease is difficult and often impossible if we do not address social determinants of health (SDOH).
The DAA commits to:
- Advancing legislation and policies to improve the health and well-being of people with and at risk for diabetes and ensuring that these policies combat health disparities and SDOH.
- Viewing our work through the lens of health equity.
- When the DAA communicates externally, whether in writing or through oral testimony or meetings, the DAAcommits to informing and educating policymakers about the drivers of health inequities among people with and at risk of diabetes, and the health equity implications of existing or new policies, regulations, and legislation.
