The Diabetes Program staff believes ongoing motivation and support are vital components of the program.
Mercy Medical Center North Iowa's Diabetes Center has established a new Adult Diabetes Support Group. It will meet the first Monday of every other month from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Exceptions will be when holidays are involved or other special events have been planned.
This group is for any adult who has diabetes. Family members or friends are also invited to attend. The purpose is to support, motivate, educate, and have FUN!!!
The location will be the Diabetes Center's Conference Room. The Center is located at the West Campus at 910 No. Eisenhower, on the west side of Mason City. Entrance will be from the north end. Directions are then given to the Diabetes Center.
Plan to join this group. Some of the comments from attendees have been:
- "This is just what I needed, and being with others who have the same goals is such a positive experience".
- "I so enjoy the friendly atmosphere and support I get from others who are facing the same challenges".
- "What a great group of people. Thank you for getting this support group started!!"
