Unity Honored for Innovation in Diabetes Care
Kathleen Dutton-Fanning, Senior Communications and Planning Partner, has received the 2012 Outstanding Innovation Award from the American Diabetes Association (ADA). This award was presented to Kathleen for her work with the Unity Diabetes Center in support of the ADA’s mission to prevent and cure diabetes, and improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
Kathleen has worked with the Unity Diabetes Center on its marketing and communications initiatives since its creation in 2009. In 2011, she led a team in the development of unitydiabetscommunity.com. This interactive web site is a free resource for our community offering live online chats twice a month, weekly tips, a forum to ask questions and see what others have to say, and an Ask an Expert email function with our Certified Diabetes Educators and Endocrinoligists. Using social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter, the web site has grown to over 200 registered users and over 58,000 page views in the first year.
Kathleen lives in Riverton.
