Community Leadership Board
Below find a list of the Northeast Ohio Community Leadership Board. The Board has two components—an Akron-Canton Board and a Cleveland Board. Each Board has a different geographic focus, although the Boards meet at the same time and work together to address the various issues and opportunities pertaining to people with diabetes, and to have a greater impact on the Association's Strategic Plan.
