Diabetes Support Group

The Diabetes Support Group (formerly known as the Diabetes Education Group) meets on a monthly basis to provide those with diabetes and their family members with new information as well as to review current therapies involved in diabetes care. In addition to getting answers to questions, the informal group setting allows people with diabetes to meet others with similar concerns.
