IPCIUM wants to connect with individuals living with chronic disease, like yourselves, in the hope that you will share your personal insights into your experience with Type 2 Diabetes (T2D). Not only because everyone’s experience is unique, but because sharing your individual journey provides understanding, acceptance and encouragement to individuals with similar lived experiences.
IPCIUM are excited to provide you with the opportunity to connect with us and our community, as we get to know you better. Over the month of April, we will be delivering a short, daily poll to understand what living with Type 2 Diabetes looks like to you.
