Diabetes Support Group

DIABETES is a chronic condition that affects all aspects of daily life and is a increasingly serious public health issue. A support group is very helpful for some diabetics who find it difficult to cope with the daily monitoring of blood glucose, diet restrictions, the schedule of exercise, etc.

Next monthly meeting:
To be announced

This group is designed to provide the personal support often needed to deal effectively with this disease and to be a resource for general information, newest research results, diet modifications that are particularly helpful, sharing individual experiences, etc.— there is an endless list of topics.

The support group will also explore the Christian response to serious illness.

Everyone is welcome—those afflicted, those with a loved one who has the disease and other interested individuals.  If you are interested in attending or would like more information, contact Chuck Partridge or Susan Hawfield or call the church office at 202-347-8161.
