Meetup Groups

Connecting with others living with diabetes can prevent feelings of isolation and offer opportunities to learn and engage with a community of people with a shared understanding. The Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center offers two free monthly meetup groups:

  • Eugene Type 1 Parent Support Group (non-OHSU sponsored):
Eugene has a parent group for families whose children have Type 1 diabetes. This group meets the 4th Friday of each month.
