Diabetes sisters share

Diabetes Sisters PODS group of Ventura County/San Fernando Valley is a support group for women with Type 1 diabetes seeking to connect with others who are living with the disease.

The next meeting will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Mon., July 9 in Agoura.

Group members meet to discuss their successes, challenges and frustrations in living with the chronic disease.

Loved ones and friends may be supportive and helpful, but being with other women who actually “get it” holds a special connection not found elsewhere, group representatives said.

The group discusses healthy eating, exercise, special techniques, tips, technology and ideas to make living with the disease a little bit easier.
