The support group offers additional help and information to those with diabetes and their caregivers to live a better life with diabetes.”

The Diabetes Support Group is open to those with diabetes and their family members. Caregivers are also invited. Reservations are not required. For more information, please contact Megan at (618) 526-5743 or megan.stanley@hshs.org.
