Diabetes Support Group

Diabetes Support Group

The Veterans Memorial Hospital Diabetes Support Group will again meet at Veterans Memorial Hospital with two optional meeting times in order to follow all of the COVID-19 social distancing guidelines.

Diabetes Educator, Angie Mettille, RN, CDE, will be facilitating the same Diabetes Support Group meeting at two different times on Thursday, July 16, which is the normal date for the support group to be held.  One session will meet at 10 a.m., the other at 1 p.m. to help keep the number attending limited to 10 or below. All those interested in attending are asked to RSVP to Angie by July 14.

The meeting will be held in the Large Conference Room.  All attendees are asked to park in the main parking lot of the hospital and enter the main entrance of the building where they will be screened with a temperature check and health questions.  Meeting participants should wait in the front lobby until they will be escorted down to the meeting room.  Participants will be scattered throughout the room in order to ensure a safe social distance from one another during the program.  All attendees will also be required to wear a mask.

This diabetes class is open to everyone who has diabetes or has a friend or loved one with diabetes.  To register for one of these Diabetes Support Group sessions on July 16, please call Angie Mettille, RN, CDE, at Veterans Memorial Hospital at 568-3411, Ext. 172.
