Input Sought for New Diabetes Support Group Planned for Machias

Machias, Healthy Acadia is seeking input and guidance from Machias area residents who are affected by prediabetes or diabetes (type 1 or type 2) and may be interested in participating in an in-person peer support group. The group will offer a casual setting for individuals living with prediabetes, type 1 or type 2 diabetes, their family members and/or caregivers to connect and share their day-to-day challenges and experiences with living with this chronic health condition.

Living with a chronic condition such as diabetes or prediabetes presents daily challenges that at times can be difficult to navigate.  Support groups provide an opportunity to connect with others in your community who understand what you are going through and may experience many of these same challenges. Together you can explore new resources and directions to help you manage your health, make meaningful connections, receive needed encouragement and inspire others.

The direction, meeting frequency and focus area(s) of the peer support group will be guided by input and comments received from community members.

Interested community members are invited and encouraged to offer input regarding their individual support needs by completing a short survey, which can be found online at: https://goo.gl/forms/2xSQRG9E56Ebc0123. Deadline to submit comments is January 19, 2018.
