The Taking Care of Us© 2 (TCU2) Program

Are you caring for a spouse or partner with Type II diabetes?
Do you or your partner identify as Black, Asian-American, Hispanic/Latino/a, or Native American?
Researchers at Boston College are looking for volunteers to test a supportive program to help couples living with and managing Type II diabetes.
The goal of the program is to improve health and well-being and reduce the strain from managing diabetes for both you and your spouse/partner.

Study Activities include:
• Participation in 7 sessions (approximately 45 minutes in length) conducted by a trained interventionist (you can choose to do the sessions by video telehealth or phone)
• A brief initial survey and one follow-up survey
• No in-person contact required
• Compensation for couples is $150
