[February 06, 2016]  LINCOLN - 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.
