Speakers Bureau Program


As part of our Mission Delivery educational programming and Communications outreach, the Speakers Bureau is comprised of over 30 volunteers who are trained in-house and sent out into the community and to companies to do 20 minute to 1 hour presentations. Topics include the scope of the diabetes epidemic, basic “diabetes 101” education, nutrition, prevention, diabetes management and complications, how to get help or resources from the ADA, and how to get involved in our local programs and events. Speaking events are free of charge.

In order to request a speaker, please fill out a request form and return it to me by email at abrashier@diabetes.org, by fax at (972) 392-1366, or by regular mail at 4100 Alpha Road, Suite 100, Dallas, TX 75244. Be sure to include your audience demographic information in the “Target Audience” section, as well as the number of attendees you expect in the “Estimated Attendance” field.

Thank you for your interest in the American Diabetes Association North Texas Office’s volunteer Speakers Bureau program.


In order to become a Speakers Bureau volunteer, please fill out a Volunteer Interest Form and also return to me and be sure to mark “Speakers Bureau” on the second page. Speakers Bureau is a great way to not only educate audiences on this growing epidemic, but also to share your story and experiences dealing with this disease. Our volunteer speakers have truly taken ownership of the program and find it fulfilling to be able to give hope to those struggling with diabetes.

Thank you for your interest in the American Diabetes Association and for contributing to diabetes awareness by utilizing our Speakers Bureau resources. By working together, we can significantly reduce the personal and economic toll of diabetes. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact me at (972) 392-1181 ext. 6101.

Take care,
