Diabetes Support Group



I, Lorraine Murphy, am a Type 1 Diabetic since age 4. I have personally dealt with the trials and tribulations of a life dictated by my blood sugar levels. My private practice and career have always been dedicated to serving those faced by life challenges... I recognize that there is little or no support beyond your endochronologist, primary care and hopefully family/friends to manage, process and overcome the challenges of this terminal yet manageable illness.


Please join me in creating a network of individuals who are experiencing the impact of adult Type 1 diabetes and want to share resources and moral support.


Psycho-educational and life enhancing activities will be offered once a month on a Tuesday evening. Please contact me to let me know of your interest.
