If People On Your Team Live Close To You Are You Allowed To Meet Up In Person Or That Not Allowed?

If People On Your Team Live Close To You Are You Allowed To Meet Up In Person Or That Not Allowed?

I guess meaning to have a coffee or tea(of course plain) and just talk IRL about this, to get more educated

@A DiabetesTeam Member there certainly is no rule in the group regulations etc that would forbid or prevent that and not sure they could actually enforce it anyhow - this is a world wide group.

Just on a personal level I would exercise the same care and judgement that you would use on any other (social media) group before I met up with someone that I had been chatting with.

Certainly meeting up with other Diabetics in person can have great value. I work with a group that provides education, guidance and mentoring to Type 2 Diabetics and we usually like to meet up in groups of 5 or 6 which can really give you some good perspective. Because what works for one may or may not work for someone else but everyone can exchange ideas.
