8:27 am on 6 April 2011

A group of west Aucklanders has set up a Maori diabetes support group after undergoing a six-week self management programme run by Waitakere Hospital.

Airini Titirangi says the Manaaki Whanau Oranga group will pick up where the clinical programme left off.

She told Waatea News] it is an opportunity for whanau members and people who have diabetes support one another and test out new behaviours.

Ms Titirangi says Manaaki Whanau Oranga has already attracted about 30 members.
