This week I have the opportunity to talk to a college level Health Psychology course about diabetes.
They gave me a few topics to consider:
- explaining the two different types (should I tell them there are more?!)
- how it affects the daily life of someone living with diabetes
- current global issues related to diabetes
- my own advocacy efforts
- and why some people are not as compliant with medical recommendation as others
Considering the suggested topics and the fact that I only have an hour – what do you think is the most important information I can present to a group of potential future mental health professionals?
