Program Overview

Social challenges often bring stigma that can cause many individuals to see diabetes as a failure, which can lead to guilt, embarrassment, or isolation and can negatively impact quality of life. Diabetes educators can play a critical role in shifting this shame and blame paradigm.

At the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to:
-- Describe how people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes experience stigma.
