Activists With Diabetes Knowledge

People For Quality CareI have mentioned my involvement with a group called People for Quality Care a few times before.  Instead of my explaining what PFQC is, I thought I would just copy their mission statement from their website:

What is People for Quality Care?

Mission Statement

Our mission is to educate people with disabilities, their families and Medicare beneficiaries about health policy changes that affect their freedom of choice. We work with advocacy groups to effect positive change and to ensure that quality, innovation and service remain part of the health care continuum.

PFQC is currently running a Facebook ad trying to bring more activists with knowledge about diabetes to their page on Facebook.  You can check out their Facebook page here.

Last month, I wrote about Medicare now including diabetes test strips in their competitive bidding program regardless of where you live.  Not all strips are created equally.  Unfortunately, test strips are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what is going on in health care these days.  I would like to encourage everyone to get involved.  Even if you are not Medicare age, what is going on will have a very big impact on you.  Please check out PFQC’s Facebook page.  Hit “like” so you can keep up with what is going on.  Share the page with your friends so they are aware.  Become involved!  The more of us sharing what we know and helping to spread the word, the better.

  1. This certainly sounds like an interesting group. Information that shades light on how certain institutions and branches of healthcare work, for diabetics as well. Being prepared for the future is important. It is also intriguing to see what type of diabetes products are on the forefront and how much money is going into them.

    The Juvenile Diabetes Cure Alliance is focused more on the major diabetes charity foundations and their workings, but sharing our reports with the community is our top priority as well.

    • They are a good group. All the changes in healthcare will have a big impact on us, so I think it is important to keep up with them instead of waiting until it is too late to speak up about them.

      Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Sharing what we know is the best way to go!
