Semester: Fall 2021


Presentation description

Families where multiple members have type 1 diabetes are rare in current diabetes literature. It is unknown how these families provide support to one another. The support role of siblings and how sibling support provided may vary based on gender and illness condition are also unknown. This study examines sibling support and its effect on parental and sibling stress in families where multiple members have type 1 diabetes and identifies differences due to gender and illness condition.
