“We are excited to continue our diabetes support through educational classes,” said Megan Stanley, diabetes nurse educator. “Diabetes is very common, but it can be difficult to manage. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Diabetes education is also provided through an online support group, offering helpful resources and engagement with others going through the same journey. To join the group, search Facebook for: Diabetes Support Group: Bond, Madison and Clinton counties, and request to join.
