One of the Minnesota Crews

I love meetups.

I will do almost anything in my power to get to them.  I missed a group meeting on Monday night, which bummed me out a bit, but couldn’t be helped.

Last night was a different story though.  I spent a few hours visiting with Dean, Mike, and MissItaly.  I loved it (as usual).

And I didn’t even have to travel out of state for this one!

This little social get-together is one of three groups I attend regularly.  There is one in Woodbury, MN, affiliated with the HealthEast system (you don’t need to be seen there to come, but you have to be diabetic or love one of us…(hi Diane!).  There is another in the Bloomington, MN area, called AWTO (Adults With Type One) that is put together by a couple JDRF volunteers (hi Matt & Becky!).   Then there is this one, which is just a group of us getting together to socialize.

The Woodbury and Bloomington meetings are a tad more formal, usually featuring a speaker and/or topic of discussion (but also plenty of time to socialize).

Please let me know if you’d like more information on any of the meetings.  I go to all of them (when I can), and get a lot of value from each of them.

I’ll even help you get there if you need a ride.

  1. I would love some more info. on meetups in the area. I fall into the loving someone with a new diabetes diagnosis category and I’m hungry for information.

  2. This is great, Scott! Thanks for the post. I’m also eager to hear about the local D-Meetups, from the more “formal” ones to just being one-on-ones or a few people hanging out to socialize. All are great, I agree! Also like how you mentioned the one was done by a couple JDRF volunteers… interesting to see how some nationally are doing that through chapters and others are just reaching out on their own to connect with people. Awesome, for all of them. Glad you got the chance to make it to this one, and share it with us.
