National Initiatives

            Project Diabetes
SNPhA is in strong support of Diabetes as one of our clinical
initiatives. Diabetes currently effects 23.6 million adults and
children in the United States. Roughly 25% of these patients are
unaware of their condition. In addition to these staggering
statistics Medicare has shown that at least 1 out of every 4
adults (~ 57 million people) are living with pre-diabetes. SNPhA
has accepted the challenge to educate patients on disease state
management, lifestyle modifications, medication therapy, and
monitoring related to Diabetes.
  Remember the Ribbon
 National HIV/AIDS Initiative aimed at
   towards promoting awareness,
education, and prevention of HIV/AIDS
      within minority populations.
    Operation Immunization
     This program is an immunization
 awareness campaign designed to increase
       the public’s knowledge about
immunizations, while increasing the number
   of adults who receive immunizations.
 Chapters will be awarded points based on
  outreach events promoting awareness.
      Power to End Stroke
SNPhA has partnered with the American
Stroke Association (ASA) on the Power to
End Stroke/Smoking Cessation initiative.
Chapters will be awarded points based on
 outreach events promoting awareness.
This is a dual initiative focusing voting registration
   among underrepresented minorities and on
immigration issues affecting the nation. Chapters

voting registration drives and citizenship drives or
          information distribution events.
