[July 12, 2016]  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.
