AGMA’s Together 2 Goal® (T2G) campaign aims to improve care for those living with type 2 diabetes. T2G campaign participants aim to improve standard type 2 diabetes measures, including blood sugar control, blood pressure control, lipid management, and testing for kidney disease. Over the past year, the campaign expanded its focus to explore other areas of treatment and measurement that could improve outcomes for patients with diabetes, including addressing risk of cardiovascular disease.
Each year, the campaign hosts a “National Day of Action”—a day when health professionals across the country come together to take steps to improve diabetes care. For two consecutive years, SMG was happy to get in on the action! On November 14, SMG assembled the committee which has been working to advance diabetes improvement efforts, to participate in AMGA’s “T2G Talk & Taste” event. Gathered over breakfast, they discussed T2G’s application in helping to motivate patients to take control of their diabetes.
A special congratulations to SMG Cardiologist, Liana Spano-Brennan, DO for being chosen this year by AMGA as a Plank Mentor. Plank Mentors are individuals chosen for excelling at implementing a given campaign plank within their organization and are available to fellow campaign participants to answer questions, offer expertise, and share lessons learned in a one-on-one setting. Dr. Spano-Brennan was elected for successfully assessing and addressing risk of cardiovascular disease in patients.
