Diabetes Support Group
If patients or parents are interested in participating in a support group, please contact social worker Rachel Hendrickson at 801-662-3719.
Our clinical social workers are available to meet with parents for short term therapy (up to 3 sessions). Focus of the therapy could include adjustment to diagnosis, burnout with diabetes, depression, and anxiety. If longer term therapy is needed, clinical social workers can help in connecting with resources. Please call us if you are interested or have questions about therapy sessions.
Each November we host an awards night for clinic patients who have had diabetes for 10 years or more. The Lilly Diabetes Journey Awards honor individuals who have managed their diabetes for 10, 25, 50, and even 75 years.
As our patients are under 18, we are unable to nominate them ourselves. If you are interested in participating, please talk to one of the social workers for more information.
More details will be provided closer to the event date.
