Diabetic Education Support Group helping for 20 years
September 27, 2017
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, it’s important to have support from other people with the disease. The Boundary County Diabetic Education Support Group has been helping this community through networking and education for 20 years.

The more individuals know about the disease, the better they are able to manage their diabetes and prevent complications. The advantage of networking with other diabetics is that you can learn about health related issues and how it can affect your care.

Many topics are covered including nutrition, exercise, reading labels, dental, ideas and suggestions from the group members.

Anyone is welcome to join the group, including family members and caregivers. The group is moderated by Edna Eby, RD, LD, who is a dietitian at Boundary Community Hospital.

Meetings are on the second Wednesday of each month September through May at 1 p.m. in the Panhandle Health Meeting Room, 7402 Caribou Street, Bonners Ferry. Call (208) 267-3141 extension 4235 for more information.
