ALMH Diabetes Offers Education and Support: Food Label Frenzy
Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital provides a free education group for people with diabetes mellitus. The group meets the third Friday of the month at the Oasis Senior Center located at 2810 Woodlawn Road in Lincoln. This month the group will meet on February 17 at 11am and discuss the topic, “Food Label Frenzy.”
The casual group meetings are free and do not require registration. Jennifer DiPasquale, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, leads the group.
“These diabetes support group meetings are 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.
Interested individuals should call DiPasquale at (217) 605-5535 or e-mail her at ALMHdiabetes@mhsil.com for more information.
