- Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital provides a free support group
for people with diabetes mellitus. The group meets the third Friday
of each month at the Oasis Senior Center located at 2810 Woodlawn
Road in Lincoln. This month the group will meet on July 15 and
discuss how important drinking enough fluids is to stay healthy,
especially for blood sugar control.
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.
