Next Meetup

First Meetup
This will serve as a meet and greet and general talk about what everyone would like from the group. I would like these discussions to have a very casual feel where anyone can bring up whatever topics related to Chronic diseases that they wish to. This is held at my Condo Complex's gatehouse. I am able to reserve the space so it is typically very private. There may be a few people coming through to get mail but besides that we should have the place to ourselves. If you are driving, please park on the road on D'onofrio Drive. Unfortunately, we do not have guest parking. If you are using the bus, there is a stop a block away at D'onofrio and West Towne. Feel free to ask if you have any questions on the location or the meeting. Thanks!

    What we're about

    This is a meetup group for people with Chronic Diseases that are open to discussing the struggles as well as triumphs in their lives. The general idea is to provide a support group for those going through medical conditions or friends and families of people with chronic disease. This is meant to provide an outlet to talk, discuss and listen to others going through similar issues, and hopefully allow one another to feel more connected by our struggles.

    The group should have a non-judgmental, understanding atmosphere, similar to a self-help group. It is important to create an inviting atmosphere with a positive vibe and support for one another.

    At this time this is just for physical chronic diseases, and not mental issues. We might extend the group type later on.

    As this is a new group, there will likely not be a formal event until January sometime. The plan is to meet once or twice a month for a relaxed discussion. If you have some available to Saturdays in January or February, please let me know so we can start to schedule our first meeting. I have an available venue that I can reserve at anytime. I typically just need to let the owner know a couple weeks in advance. I look forward to meeting you!
