Pre-Teen Diabetes Support Group

Time: 6 - 7:30 pm

Where: Main Campus - ED-025A

Details:  An informal gathering for pre-teens to share experiences and feelings about managing their diabetes. This will be a safe environment where teens can speak their mind freely and find support in each other. We will have some planned activities and guest speakers, but mostly just provide an opportunity for teens to discuss whatever topics are on their minds! A social worker will be present to help facilitate discussion. We hope you can attend as many groups as possible!

Light refreshments provided.

Coffee will be provided to parents who would like to stay to meet others with children living with DM.
