Boundary County Diabetic Education Support Group

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, it’s important to have support from other people with the disease such as the Boundary County Diabetic Education Support Group.

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 Shantel Pluid RD, LD who is a dietitian at Boundary Community Hospital. Meetings are on the third Monday of each month September through May at 1:00 pm in the Fry Healthcare Education Center
