Donald A. Bergman, MD, MACE and Susan Bergman Family Fund

This fund was established in 2016 by Dr. and Mrs. Bergman to support the College EmPower® program. Dr. Bergman was instrumental in starting the program, which was Initially launched in May 2003 as the Power of Prevention program, AACE’s redefined EmPower platform is a comprehensive, powerful and wide-reaching AACE patient education initiative consisting of EmPower Magazine, related website www.empoweryourhealth.org, a streamlined, mobile version of the site, and a number of public educational programs held throughout the year. EmPower Magazine continues to be the strongest AACE public awareness asset, reaching out to endocrine patients and their family members/friends, allied healthcare professionals, AACE member physicians and non-AACE member physicians.

Published by the American College of Endocrinology (ACE), each issue of the free, quarterly periodical addresses the broad spectrum of endocrine health conditions, including prediabetes, diabetes, obesity, thyroid dysfunction, clinical nutrition and other endocrine concerns and highlights symptomology, treatment regimes, and tips for disease prevention. Articles are written by endocrinologists who have years of experience in treating patients with endocrine disorders.

The inaugural issue of the magazine was published in January 2009. The magazine has flourished, with stronger design and outreach efforts that have resulted in a number of new subscribers for the publication, particularly PCPs and allied healthcare personnel such as CDEs. This is in addition to the opt-in subscriptions of domestic AACE members.

An important component of the EmPower program’s success is the magazine’s complimentary website, www.empoweryourhealth.org. Optimized for mobile users, this content-rich resource includes all articles from previous issues of the magazine as well as robust information regarding all endocrine health issues, symptoms, and treatments, providing expert insight for endocrine patients, family, and others researching endocrine conditions.
