Diabetes Advisory Council Awards and Scholarship
Each year the Diabetes Advisory Council (DAC) accepts nominations and scholarship applications to recognize those who have demonstrated exemplary work in diabetes prevention and management including employers, caregivers, faith communities, health care providers, and pharmacists. Those nominated must have encouraged others to eat healthy, be physically active, live tobacco free, get adequate sleep, participate in a diabetes program, or adhere to a personalized diabetes treatment plan as outlined in North Carolina’s Guide to Diabetes Prevention and Management 2020.

Nominators and scholarship applicants are required to submit a cover letter and two letters of reference along with the nomination form.

Nominations are due by July 31, 2021!

Award recipients are selected in September, invited to the Fall DAC Meeting on October 29, 2021 and recognized during the awards ceremony.
