#dedoc° believes in the value patients bring to scientific congresses.
This is why we have created the #dedoc° voices scholarship.
The #dedoc° voices scholarship program grants diabetes patient advocates free access to the world's most prestigious diabetes conferences: ATTD, EASD and ISPAD. It provides a dedicated platform for PwD, HCPs, researchers and industry to meet and exchange: #docday°, #docnight°, our #dedoc° voices networking events and our exclusive DOClab consultancy sessions.
#dedoc° voices commit to #dedoc°'s core principal of peer support: #PayItForward. They join a powerful network of like-minded peers who mentor, coach and support their advocacy work. They participate in scientific sessions and industry symposia to discuss, curate and translate what they consider relevant and share their learnings in a way that is understood and appreciated by PwD and the Diabetes Online Community around the world.

Want to attend EASD or ISPAD and become a #dedoc° voice?
Deadline: Friday, 10 September 2021
(late applications for ISPAD only may be considered)
Any diabetes advocate can apply to become a #dedoc° voice by answering the following questions:
Who are you, and why do you want to become a #dedoc° voice?
Which sessions and symposia would you like to attend, and why?
How will you report back to your community and pay it forward?
Applications are reviewed by a group of experienced #dedoc° advocates and #docday° alumni in a spirit of fairness, transparency and equal access. Decisions are based on individual profile, personal motivation, gender balance, regional distribution and other pre-defined criteria. #dedoc° strives to be inclusive and diverse, empower minorities, PoC, T2D and advocates from countries where access is a challenge, and bring these voices to the forefront of everything we do.

#dedoc° voices for partners
Partners contribute to the #dedoc° voices program because they wish to engage with leading diabetes advocates in a compliant way. They do so through a non-commercial, non-exclusive multi-sponsorship approach to ensure the highest degree of independence, transparency and credibility for the patient voice.
