“Managing diabetes takes a lot of work,’’ shared Laura Slaathaug, clinical dietitian at RiverView. “A diabetes support group can help a person to learn to change diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits without having to do it alone.’’

Slaathaug will lead the monthly meetings and invite special speakers to share information and tips.

The meetings are free and open to anyone with Type 2 diabetes and their family members. New members are always welcome. The following dates have been set for the remainder of 2021:

  • Wednesday, Sept. 15
  • Wednesday, Oct. 20
  • Wednesday, Nov. 17
  • Wednesday, Dec. 15
