The Hawthorne Diabetes group provides a platform for people to share their experiences with diabetes, including pre-diabetes, newly diagnosed, long-term complications, and care-givers for both Type I and Type II diabetes.
This group is led by a medical nutritionist and certified diabetes educator with over 20 years in practice. It is a place where people can explore their discoveries and frustrations, as well as their uncertainties in a supportive environment. We recognize that diabetes can be a lot of work and there is no shame or blame involved.
Intention of the group: - to help people learn how to listen to their bodies and to recognize body wisdom - providing tools to develop the skills to manage diabetes well using kindness and self compassion During these gatherings, we will: - Check-in (what’s going well for each person and what you may be struggling with) - Discussion based on check-ins - Presentation of idea from group coordinator - Discussion about the idea/topic of the month - Hand-outs included - Brief mention of next month’s topic
For February’s Hawthorne Diabetes Group discussion you are invited to bring any and all questions, comments and convictions regarding diabetes care. What are your struggles? Share your successes. Or, just join the conversation!
This meeting is focused on realistic ways you can share your daily life with diabetes.
Feel free to send in your questions and comments before we meet: [masked].
