Parents Empowering Parents – PEP (Coming Soon)

A PEP Squad is a group of parents of children with diabetes who support each other during different life stages and experiences with diabetes.

Members of the group who have undergone the challenges first hand are able to support newly-diagnosed families, or families encountering a new diabetes-related trial. Questions are answered with personal experiences, while information, resources, emotional support and hope are shared.

Need medical advice?

Please note that Diabetes.bh groups cannot give medical advice. They can only talk about diabetes from their own experiences. If you need medical advice please contact your local diabetes specialist nurse, or local diabetes centre.
