Metro Parks and Recreation and the Public Health and Wellness Department are proud to offer support groups for persons with diabetes that live in the Highlands and surrounding areas! If you’ve recently been diagnosed with diabetes or are a veteran living with it, we have a support group and program for you. We also have meetings for youths and adults living with the disease. Meetings will offer healthy snacks, ideas for better management of your diabetes, exercise and activity ideas and networking and support.
The Adult Diabetes Support Group meets the 2nd Thursday of each Month from 5 – 6:30 p.m. at the Douglass Community Center, 2305 Douglass Blvd. The next meeting will be April 8th. The youth group for ages 16 and younger will meet the 3rd Saturday of each month from 1:30 – 3 p.m. at Douglass.
Support and information will be offered for youth with diabetes and their families. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to not only learn all you can about diabetes management, but get a chance to meet others, socialize and build a great support. For more information, call 456-8120 or 456-8148.
