A healthful and mindful life requires support from others

When you, someone you love, or a family member has been diagnosed with any form of diabetes or sickle cell, it can be overwhelming. Being part of a support group is a proactive way to find support, help, tips, tool and can be part of an integrated approach to better management.

We are creating a safe space where anyone affected by diabetes or sickle cell disease can ask for advice, provide information, or simply learn from others’ conversations — without fear of judgment or stigma. Our goal is to improve higher quality of life and this may reult in part from the shared experience, social support, and empowerment people experienced from the social connections created in our community

Membership is open for diabetes and sickle cell disease patients, their family members and caregivers
