Peer Mentoring


Research shows that patients with a variety of chronic health conditions, including cancer and diabetes, benefit from peer mentoring programs. Through shared experiences, patients can find support and understanding with each other.  Effective peer mentoring programs result in increased self-management skills, improved psychosocial status, and promising targeted clinical outcomes.
