Diabetes Support Groups
Led by Harold Hamm Diabetes Center behavioral health specialists, diabetes support groups offer a safe environment to discuss the shared experiences of adults with diabetes, their caregivers, their families, and parents of children with diabetes (parents see below). Sharing the daily struggles of living with a chronic illness helps improve your quality of life and ease the burdens of feeling isolated by diabetes.

No cost to participants, compliments of Harold Hamm Diabetes Center.
