Daphene Kimball left the very first DiabetesSisters Weekend for Women conference in Raleigh, NC, with her older sister and oldest friend, feeling empowered and energized to learn how to “do diabetes” and make diabetes decisions that valued her own experience and needs as much as her health care provider’s. That was in 2010.

After being diagnosed with diabetes (type 1) as an adult in 2017, Rena Rossi found DiabetesSisters and the Part of DiabetesSisters (PODS) Meetup program. Rena knew that she needed peer support for her own life with diabetes, and wanted to become more involved with the diabetes community, but the closest PODS Meetup was more than an hour (and a different state) away. Plus, she wanted to create the first PODS Meetup in Rhode Island.
