Diabetes Myths and Stigma

Posted by Teresa, Volunteer Mentor @hopeful33250, Apr 23, 2022

Mayo Clinic recently published an article about Diabetes. This article addresses some of the "myths" that surround diabetes. Many of us have heard these myths and have felt the stigma associated with them when we meet with well-meaning family and friends.

Let's take a look at this article and discuss how this might help you to deflect the myths when you hear them.
What have you learned? Did you learn anything about the myths that you've believed in the past? If so, how can you correct those myths?
