The Diabetes Support Group at HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland will hold its first in-person meeting in over a year on Thursday, August 4 at 4 p.m. in the Frisse Conference Room. In-person meetings were temporarily suspended for safety due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Diabetes Support Group is open to those with diabetes and their family members and/or caregivers. In celebration of this return meeting, participants will receive a small gift at the August 4 meeting. The group will continue to meet on the first Thursday of each month. 

Participants will be required to wear non-cloth, medical-grade masks, as masks are still required in health care facilities per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.

Registration is required. Please contact Lisa Ketchem at 618-526-5743 or to register or for more information.

If you are unable to attend the in-person support group or would like an online resource, please join the Facebook group: Diabetes Support Group: Bond, Madison and Clinton Counties.
