Diabetes Support Group @ Bowie Community Room
Oct 18 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Living successfully with diabetes takes more than initial education and training. Bowie Memorial Hospital offers a quarterly support groups for patients with diabetes and their families in order to keep your diabetes on track. Support groups are free to attend. Refreshments will be served.

According to the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support published in Diabetes Care in January 2013, on average, those initial health improvements people often make begin to diminish within six months if a person doesn’t have ongoing self-management support. But people with type 2 diabetes who attend support group meetings are better able to sustain or even build on their health improvements, according to a study published in the January 2012 issue of Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice. After getting a diagnosis of diabetes, you may be spurred to make important lifestyle changes. But these changes often don’t happen overnight, and enthusiasm for eating healthier, getting regular activity, and monitoring your blood sugar can be difficult to maintain over the long term. Finding and sticking with a support group can keep you engaged and motivated. This diabetes support group has been helping this community since the early 1980’s.

Coping with diabetes is easier when you have access to a network of people who know firsthand what it takes to manage the condition. Join us for this free educational event. All are welcome For more information please contact: Brenda Haile, RN,CDE at(940)872-5811
