College & Careers with Narcolepsy

Description

This support group is for individuals currently navigating college and careers with a diagnosis of narcolepsy. Our focus is on relevant issues, such as symptom management, school, work, relationships, exercise, health and diet. Attendees are welcome to bring their most pressing concerns to the group for peer-to-peer support. Discussions are guided by a peer facilitator, with narcolepsy, navigating the same issues. Meetings are held each Tuesday online and require registration, which is free of charge.
