Sharing important diabetes management skills and experiences through peer mentoring may help adolescents and young adults with type 1 diabetes control their disease, according to study findings published in The Diabetes Educator.

“Many adolescents and young adults with type 1 diabetes are interested in peer mentoring as an approach to help improve patient adherence and glycemic control,” Yang Lu, PhD, MPP, assistant professor at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and investigator at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute, told Endocrine Today. “Clinicians play a critical role in identifying and connecting youth with diabetes who seek peer support.”
