Who is DPAC?

The Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition (DPAC) is an alliance of people with diabetes, caregivers, patient advocates, health professionals, disease organizations and companies working collaboratively to promote and support public policy initiatives to improve the health of people with diabetes. DPAC seeks to ensure the safety and quality of medications, devices, and services; and access to care for all 30.3 million Americans with diabetes.


DPAC was co-founded and is run by patients with diabetes. DPAC welcomes all in keeping policy makers’ attention on people with diabetes. Diabetes advocacy is like diabetes care; both are long-term processes with no quick fixes.

There is good work being done in diabetes advocacy, but there are still gaps. Some issues do not fit the priorities of other organizations’ advocacy efforts, and there are others that need to be kept on the agenda consistently to gain traction. We help fill those advocacy gaps by collaborating with other diabetes and chronic health organizations.

We are proud members of the following coalitions and organizations:
