Event Description

As you know, people with diabetes can face discrimination at work, at school, in public places and elsewhere in their lives, which is largely the result of ignorance about diabetes and current methods of diabetes management. The American Diabetes Association is committed to ending discrimination through its Legal Advocacy services by helping people affected by diabetes understand their legal rights and preventing/stopping discrimination through a four-step approach: educate, negotiate, litigate and legislate.

 

On Wednesday, Jan. 30, from 3 to 4 p.m. ET, the American Diabetes Association will hold a special Facebook chat on diabetes, discrimination and how to get help. Posting from the Association’s Facebook page will be special guest Katie Hathaway, Managing Director for Legal Advocacy, who will answer audience questions on the page’s “wall.” To participate, log on to Facebook and post you questions directly to the American Diabetes Association wall (or status box in the upper-right corner of the page).
