We also need to improve and protect access to health care for people with diabetes and expand efforts to prevent diabetes."

R. Stewart Perry, ADA Chair of the Board, Lexington, KY

-- Mr. Perry has been an active ADA volunteer since he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1990.

-- He oversees ADA's affairs and manages policy, goals, and direction of the Association.

Robert Charles Garrett, FACHE, ADA Secretary/Treasurer, Hackensack, NJ

-- Mr. Garrett has been an active ADA volunteer leader since 2003.
