Double the Experts: The Powerhouse Couple: A Diabetes Advocate and a Former State Senator
Trip and Doug will share their unique perspectives. Trip is an active advocate for people with diabetes in Georga. She organizes Type 1 Diabetes Day where the state legislators interact with people with Type 1 to learn the realities of living with diabetes. Doug, a former state senator and now a lobbyist, will share the perspective of an insider on what works best.
Doug and Trip will speak about practical techniques highlighting the importance of building connections in the statehouse. These can be more than channels to help inform state policy for people with diabetes. Many members of the U.S. Congress begin careers in state legislatures and carry the relationships they build locally with them to Washington. In this way, advocacy contacts can become increasingly productive.
