L. Hunter Limbaugh, Chair of the Board, American Diabetes Association

One of the greatest joys of being a part of the leadership of the American Diabetes Association is the chance to recognize the outstanding contributions that are made throughout the year by our wonderful volunteers. There are hundreds of individuals, groups and organizations across the country who have made it their priority to help in our mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

That is why it is important for you to be aware that beginning today, you can submit your nominee for any one of our seven National Service Achievement Awards—all designed to recognize those who have gone a step above in helping to take back the power that diabetes steals from us.

We urge you to visit the new National Achievement Awards website to learn more about each of the seven awards that recognize achievements in some of the following areas:

  • Lifetime service in the cause of diabetes
  • Diabetes research funding
  • Public policy
  • Volunteer service
  • Health promotion and awareness

So, give it some thought. Who do you know that deserves to have their passion and dedication recognized? Who among us is focused on game-changing success in growing the movement to Stop Diabetes®?

This important call for nominations will be open until June 20, giving you nearly six weeks to take the important step of putting forth your nominee(s) for the 2012 National Service Achievement Awards. We look forward to your submissions.

L. Hunter Limbaugh
Chair of the Board
American Diabetes Association

    I want to ominate my son, Chris Kincer. How do I do so?
    He’s been Type1 since he was 18 months old. We always did the walks and swims. Last year, he decided he really wanted to make a difference and try to get people his generation more involved. He came up with “Throwdown For A Cure”. He puts bandss and venues together and arranges concerts, with all proceeds going to benefit juvenile diabetes through the JDRF. He is doing this and making things happen…..

    Look him and “Throwdown For A Cure” on Facebook!
    Let’s stop diabetes “One moshpit at a time!”
