iCARE Patient Advisory Group
The patient advisory group was created from participants that took part in the iCARE study. This group includes not only patients, who are youth living with type 2 diabetes, but also parents/caregivers. This group was created to provide direction for this research team and helped to establish the importance of mental health and its effect on type 2 diabetes, which otherwise may not have been explored. This group has also provided a safe place for members to share their feelings and struggles of having type 2 diabetes.
Most recently this group has worked together to create a video on what it is like to live with Type 2 Diabetes. Watch below or visit the CHRIM YouTube page.
