[February 04, 2016]
- Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital provides a free support group
for people with diabetes mellitus. The group typically meets the
third Friday of the month but the February meeting will be on the
fourth Friday, February 26 in the Wombacher Room at ALMH.
The casual group meetings are free and do not require
registration. Jennifer DiPasquale, a registered dietitian and
certified diabetes educator, leads the group. “The diabetes support
group is a great opportunity to get practical and timely information
about how to manage your diabetes,” DiPasquale said. Family members,
friends and caregivers are also welcome to attend the meetings.
In 2010, an estimated 25.8 million people or 8.3 percent of the
population had diabetes. In Logan County, 9.9 percent of residents
have been diagnosed with diabetes.
