Navigating Diabetes: Support Groups & Communities
Diabetes can be a difficult and sometimes discouraging condition to manage, but you don’t have to do it alone! Whether you have Diabetes or take care of someone who does, support groups and communities who care are an integral part of your health plan and can help you navigate medication, eating habits, exercise routines, and lifestyle choices that can improve your quality of life. Join us for our next virtual event where we’ll hear from the leader of one of these support groups to help you learn more.

Joyce Linnen is the Executive Director of the Georgetown Diabetes CORE Group, a nonprofit organization in Georgetown County that provides under insured diabetics in the community with supplies and resources to help with the day-to-day management of conditions associated with the disease. Utilizing a network of local churches, businesses, and health care providers, the Diabetes CORE Group has reached over 200,000 people in the last 25 years and was recently named 1 of 18 Centers of Excellence in America.

Diabetes frequently contributes to and exacerbates vision loss, especially in rural, low-income communities where making healthy lifestyle choices is difficult due to limited access to resources. Join LVS in promoting awareness, prevention, and management of Diabetes in our 2022 Virtual Event Series! This event is the second in our 2022 event lineup.
