Our support groups are led by Certified Diabetes Educators, Registered Nurses, Registered Dietitians, and others who are committed to diabetes education and prevention. They are active in community programs to promote early screening and detection. 

Here is what our support groups can offer you: 

  • Honest discussion about how the disease affects your (and your loved ones') physical and emotional self.
  • The opportunity to receive and provide support to those in need.
  • Education on nutrition, foot care, eye care, prevention of long-term complications, exercise, and other topics of interest. 
  • Special programs and activities. 

Anyone 18 or older who has diabetes or is caring for someone with diabetes is welcome.
