Young Women's Support Group
Are you between the ages of 18-30? Would you like to meet other young women who have diabetes? Through group discussion, you can share your experiences, gain support and understanding and improve your diabetes self-care. Joslin’s group program can help you explore the issues that are important to you and help you begin to make life changes. Themes often discussed include:
- Setting realistic goals
- Coping with diabetes in relationships
- Coping with your body image, food and exercise
- Coping with less than perfect sense of self
- Decreasing anxiety about complications
- Reducing fears of low blood glucose
- Staying on track during times of stress
Groups will be led by Marilyn Ritholz, Ph.D. She is a licensed psychologist who treats patients with diabetes.
Please call (617) 732-2594 for information.
This program has been subsidized through an educational grant from Roche Diagnostic.
