Community Medical Center Presents Diabetes Support Groups


Navigating holiday dinners with the help of The Center for Diabetes

Toms River, NJ—It’s the most wonderful time of the year – but not if you’re diabetic. To help people of all ages living with diabetes who are looking to make smart decisions as the holidays approach, The Center for Diabetes at Community Medical Center, an affiliate of RWJBarnabas Health, offers holiday-themed support groups to focus on staying alert and healthy in between the pumpkin pie and carols.

Led by Kathy Siciliano, RN, CDE, both the Monthly Diabetes Support Group and Insulin Support Group are free, open to the public and provide newcomers and returning attendees with new, useful information. November’s support group focus is “How Can I Enjoy Thanksgiving?” while attendees in December will be “Figuring Out Carbs for Holiday Foods.” Siciliano will present helpful information on navigating holiday dinner tables, and attendees are encouraged to share their own advice and stories.

The monthly diabetes support group meets Mondays, November 21 and December 19 at 1:30 p.m. The Insulin Pump Support Group meets Tuesdays, November 15 and December 20 at 7 p.m. All groups meet at The Center for Diabetes at Community Medical Center, located on the third floor of Riverwood Plaza 1 at 67 Route 37 West in Toms River.
