Do you need help and encouragement to manage your diabetes? Can you offer tips and encouragement to others?
A support group for people who live with diabetes is meeting monthly on Thursday mornings from 9:30 –11:00 at the St. John Vianney Parish Center, 823 Climax St. The next meeting will be Thursday October 26, 2006.
Type 2 diabetes has developed to epidemic proportions in the United States and can often be prevented or managed better with lifestyle changes. Anyone with diabetes of any type is welcome to participate. There will be discussion, education and a chance to offer support and ideas to each other.
If you are interested or have any questions, please call Debbie Koch RN, parish nurse for Hilltop Health Ministry Consortium at 412-381-8300.
