Get help to eat better and to feel better, learn how to manage or prevent diabetes, attend a group session, or meet with our nutrition and lifestyle educators one-on-one.

Diabetes sessions

We want to increase your awareness of risk factors associated with diabetes, promote methods of reducing diabetes complications, and give you a push to live a more active, healthier life. Each month on the last Thursday we host a diabetes session for those who have been diagnosed and their families. Sessions include helpful tips, information, and are geared towards topics you want to learn about like: dental healthy, foot care, nutrition, lab clinics, and we bring in a variety of health care providers to offer medical advice. Each session includes a nutritious lunch with a recipe you can bring home, an open flood for discussion, and some quick and easy exercises.

The goal of these Diabetes support group meetings is to increase awareness of risk factors associated with diabetes.
