TYPE 1 Diabetes Support Group

Get Directions

Living with Type 1 diabetes can be an isolating experience. Between the day-to-day demands of checking blood glucose, managing insulin, and attending to other aspects of your health, you may feel alone with this illness or burned out living with it. Talking with other people who live with diabetes can help you to feel more connected, empowered, and motivated. By joining with others living with Type 1 you will have an opportunity to share information, experiences, and challenges with people who understand the illness first hand.

This support group will be facilitated by Aaron Price, LICSW and is open to any Joslin patient 18 or older living with Type 1. Please note that insurance will be billed for the session and that regular co-pays apply. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes before the group so that sessions can begin on time.
