The Living with Diabetes Adult Support Group gives adults with diabetes and their families a place to talk about their experiences and share concerns and questions. The goal is to support the daily efforts made by those with diabetes to live with their condition by giving them an opportunity to connect with others with the same condition.

The group is led by a certified diabetes educator from the Cotton O’Neil Diabetes Learning Center. Questions are generally discussed as a group and may be clarified by the educator.

On the first Tuesday of each month, the educator conducts an educational session on a diabetes topic. Over the course of a year, these sessions are similar to the education provided in the diabetes self-management program of the Diabetes Learning Center. This can be helpful for patients who don’t have insurance coverage for diabetes self-management training and for those who have already completed the basic diabetes education.

This group is open to adults with type 2 diabetes as well as their families. No registration is required.
