Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Despite advances in medication options and technological advances for people with diabetes, the percentage of people with diabetes achieving the desired A1c goal of less than 7% has remained unchanged over the last two decades. In the U.S. there are almost 30 million people living with diabetes, and another 80 million estimated to have pre-diabetes. The CDC estimates that $1 out of every $4 in U.S. health care costs is spent on caring for people with diabetes. If current trends continue, 1 in 3 Americans will develop diabetes sometime in their lifetime. Only a minority of people with diabetes are attaining the important metabolic goals put forth by the American Diabetes Association to prevent acute and chronic complications of diabetes. Eye, kidney, nerve, and heart disease are still occurring at very high rates, resulting in decreased quality of life, diminished productivity, increased health care costs, and high rates of morbidity and mortality.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

For all people with diabetes and their loved ones to have full access to proper education and therapy to aid in the prevention, early detection and aggressive management of diabetes and its complications.

Throughout TCOYD’s 26-year history, data collected from conference participants has demonstrated that TCOYD’s engaging programs are effective in empowering people with diabetes to become active and motivated partners on their own health care team. As their health outcomes improve, the quality of life for themselves, their families and their community is enhanced–and the costs of caring for their diabetes and its complications decrease, which is an economic benefit to the nation.
TCOYD strives to be the number one source for diabetes information and empowerment–in the U.S. and eventually worldwide–for all people with diabetes and their loved ones. The COVID-19-inspired pivot to online programs served as a successful pilot project demonstrating that the reach of our effective programs can be dramatically expanded with targeted outreach expansion and strategic funding.
Our goals are to continually evaluate, expand and enrich programs; to broaden the reach of proven TCOYD educational and motivational tools to more people with diabetes, their loved ones and health care professionals–first in the U.S. and potentially worldwide; and to ensure the effectiveness and sustainability of TCOYD at its enhanced level.
Basic areas of focus will include: 1) improving diabetes control through proper use of medications and devices, 2) positively impacting lifestyle approaches, 3) enhancing self-care knowledge on health maintenance and reducing end-stage complications (eye, kidney, and heart disease), 4) addressing the emotional and behavioral issues including improving medication adherence and persistence and 5) improving the doctor/patient relationship by addressing the barriers in knowledge and communication of healthcare professionals. The end results of the Step Initiative will not only improve the lives of people living with diabetes, but also help to reduce the health care costs relating to the costly end-stage complications.
TCOYD will create and execute a dynamic communications strategy that incorporates both proven successful tactics with new, innovative avenues. TCOYD will enhance its presence on relevant channels including state-of-the-art virtual conference platforms, engaging social media campaigns, unique podcasts, electronic newsletters, email campaigns, influencer partnerships, and more. TCOYD will collaborate with a cutting-edge digital marketing agency to amplify TCOYD’s reach and use powerful analytics to develop high-conversion campaigns to increase brand awareness, build our reputation as the leader in diabetes education, and create TCOYD members for life. Additionally, the TCOYD website will be developed into the ultimate resource hub for all diabetes information, programming, and community connections.
