#dedoc° voices



#dedoc° believes in the value patient advocates bring to scientific congresses.

This is why we have created the #dedoc° voices.


The #dedoc° voices scholarship program grants diabetes advocates free access to the world's most prestigious diabetes conferences and provides a dedicated platform for PwD, HCPs, researchers and industry leaders to meet and exchange: #docday°

#dedoc° voices commit to participating in scientific sessions and industry symposia and to sharing their learnings with the community. They join a powerful network of like-minded peers who mentor, coach and support their advocacy work, and they curate, translate and report on the latest scientific findings, technological advances and products in a way that is understood and appreciated by PwD around the world.

The #dedoc° voices scholarship was originally designed to cover travel and accommodation for diabetes advocates to attend ATTD, EASD and ISPAD in-person. With the current pandemic having forced conferences worldwide to go virtual, it was successfully transformed into a fully virtual program, allowing us to support more diabetes advocates than ever and reaching a much larger audience around the world.

Questions regarding the #dedoc° voices scholarship program may be sent to voices@dedoc.org

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.
