DiabetesSisters Continues Support for Women Living with Diabetes during COVID-19 Watch
Date:3/12/2020

DiabetesSisters will offer Meetup Leaders and the community they serve the opportunity to continue monthly PODS Meetups using online or conference call methods through May 1, 2020. As a national nonprofit with a large number of volunteer leaders in communities across the United States, striving to improve the health and quality of life for women with diabetes, DiabetesSisters is committed to closely following the situation regarding COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus), and lowering the impact of COVID-19 on both its volunteers and the members of peer support groups those volunteers lead.

“We know that even (and especially) during this time, women living with diabetes need peer support,” said Anna Norton, MS, CEO of DiabetesSisters. “We will monitor the situation and communicate with PODS Leaders if these dates require an extension.”

People with diabetes have been identified as one group that may face higher risks of complications when dealing with COVID-19. For the health and safety of its volunteer leaders, group members, and staff, DiabetesSisters is following recommendations from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

About the PODS Meetup Program:
Since 2010, the PODS (Part of DiabetesSisters) Meetup Program has offered monthly support to women living with any type of diabetes or prediabetes, providing a safe and nonjudgmental place to discuss the successes and challenges of living with diabetes. Led by women living with diabetes, the groups offer true peer support focused on women and diabetes. The PODS Meetup Program reaches more than 2,000 women annually in person and online. Women age 18 and over, living with any type of diabetes or prediabetes, are invited to attend PODS Meetups.
