Diabetes can often seem overwhelming. It is important to have support from family, friends and other people with diabetes. (this wording is already there) The Diabetes Care Center hosts a support group for adults that meets bi-monthly on the second Thursday of that month. Meetings are from 7-8pm and held at the hospital. No cost is involved. Topics and speakers will vary.Please call 714-4726 if you have any questions.
Exercise is an important way for people with diabetes to get or keep their diabetes under control. It can help prevent type 2 diabetes. Our supervised exercise classes will show you how to introduce and maintain exercise in your life. The program is personalized to your needs and abilities and is ongoing. A referral from your physician is required. Please call 714-4726 for cost and availability.
