Win With Diabetes: Program for Parents of Newly Diagnosed Children

August 24, 2010

We are pleased to announce a new program for parents whose children have been diagnosed recently.

Beginning August 25, 2010, Jeanine Connolly will lead a FREE monthly “Win With Diabetes” empowerment group at the JDRF office. CLICK HERE for the flyer.

DFW is home to world-class medical research institutions and expert Diabetes practitioners. After diagnosis and hours of education classes, Diabetes can become all-consuming and overwhelming as we live with the fact that managing Diabetes is easier said than done.

This program provides inspiration, hope & connection immediately after diagnosis.

JDRF Conference Room
9400 North Central Expy, Suite 1201

Jeanine Connolly, MA, Licensed Professional Counselor Intern, was diagnosed in May, 1971 at the age of 4, so she knows what it’s like to grow up with Diabetes.

    I attended a seminar last month in which Jeanine Connolly informed us all of what we are doing right and what we are doing wrong when it comes to dealing with a diabetic child.
    I had no idea. But her information and insight really helped us to understand the way a 5, 10, 15, or 20 year old might be dealing with diabetes on an emotional and physical level.
    I only wish this seminar was available 5 years ago when my kid was first diagnosed. That said, Jeanine is a ray of light in a murky world for the families of the newly diagnosed Type I diabetic.
    We should urge all of our new families to make a date to attend her workshops.
