Diabetes Advisory Council
Welcome to the Florida Diabetes Advisory Council Website
What is the Diabetes Advisory Council?
The Diabetes Advisory Council is a statutorily mandated (385.203, F.S.) group that was created to guide a statewide comprehensive approach to diabetes prevention, diagnosis, education, care, treatment, impact, and costs. The Diabetes Advisory Council serves as the advisory unit to the Department of Health, other governmental agencies, professional and other organizations, and the general public. The council provides statewide leadership to continuously improve the lives of Floridians with diabetes and reduce the burden of diabetes. The Diabetes Advisory Council makes specific recommendations to the State Surgeon General regarding the public health aspects of the prevention and control of diabetes.
