Become a Leader

Become a Leader

Through DiabetesSisters programs, women with diabetes form strong circles of support and can freely share encouragement, resources, and stories of hope or desperation.
 
Our signature program, Meetups, began in 2010. It provides encouragement, education, and empowerment through monthly peer support groups of women living with any type of diabetes or prediabetes in locations across the country. These peer support groups are organized and led by volunteers who are women with diabetes, called Leaders.
 
Leaders give their time and talents to change the lives of women with diabetes and prediabetes every day. They share their own life experiences with diabetes as a tool to support, educate, and advocate for peers in their communities and often in state and national forums. Leaders are representatives of the DiabetesSisters organization. They are the heart of DiabetesSisters and are key teammates as we strive to ensure the voices of women with diabetes and prediabetes are heard.
 
DiabetesSisters is looking for women living with diabetes to apply to become Leaders.  DS Meetups is the nation’s only program that organizes volunteer leaders to facilitate peer support groups for women with diabetes or prediabetes.
