The Diabetes Support Group

Home Page

Welcome to The Diabetes Support Group in the greater Richmond community!

We are a diverse group of people affected by diabetes who gather monthly to support each other, learn from experts, and share experiences.

Our support group is open to Type I and Type II diabetics of all ages and their families, parents, children, siblings, friends, colleagues and anyone else who wants to help them manage their diabetes.  We encourage a positive attitude and proactive management of the disease.

Meetings typically consist of two components. A health, lifestyle or other professional will introduce the month's topic during the first 30 minutes. The program leaders then facilitate a 45-minute group session of sharing experiences, solutions, and best practices.

 
Our support group is lead by non-medical professionals. Individual participants should seek appropriate medical attention, and follow the orders of those medical professionals.

We are always looking for new members.

We meet the 4th Wednesday of EVERY month from 6:00 - 7:30 PM at:

St. Mary's Hospital -- Diabetes Treatment Center 
Medical Office Building South
5870 Bremo Road, Suite 712
Richmond, Virginia
  23226
