Voices of Know Diabetes by Heart

Call for Stories

Know Diabetes by Heart (KDBH) aims to empower people living with type 2 diabetes to take charge of their health and reduce their risk for cardiovascular disease.

The American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association are looking for real voices to share their stories and serve as national ambassadors for the Know Diabetes by Heart initiative. To apply to be a Know Diabetes by Heart ambassador complete the below form and upload a 60-second or less video, sharing your story.

This is your chance to share your story! We want to hear about your health journey in your own words; however, these ideas may help guide your thoughts as you prepare to record your video:
  • Who are you?
  • What is one thing you wish you had known before you started this journey?
  • What do you want to tell others?
  • How do you feel about your health journey?
  • Who inspires you to live a longer, healthier life?


The call for stories has been extended and now closes on June 12, 2019.

If selected to move forward, you’ll receive an email from the Know Diabetes by Heart team by July 31, 2019.

If you have technical challenges uploading your video, email: voices.kdbh@heart.org.
