DiabetesSisters Board of Directors Institutes #LanguageMatters Policy

On September 6, 2019, the DiabetesSisters Board of Directors voted unanimously to adopt an organization-wide policy focusing on a diabetes-language movement (#LanguageMatters) to include oral and written language. The organization will accelerate its focus on language that is neutral and non-judgmental, free from stigma, respectful and inclusive, empowering, and person-centered (to include care that is respectful of, and responsive to, individual preferences, needs, and values).

“Adopting an organization-wide policy reinforces the work of DiabetesSisters, encouraging women living with diabetes to communicate in a welcoming environment, allowing them to thrive with chronic illness,” said Donna Rice, Chair of the Board of Directors. “It focuses on the psychosocial wellbeing of all persons living with diabetes with the ultimate goal of providing support that is free of stigma.”

Modeling this policy after a recent joint paper by the America Diabetes Association (ADA) and the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE), DiabetesSisters is proud to initiate this movement to impact the motivation, behavior and outcomes of people living with diabetes and their loved ones.
