Volunteers for Diabetes providing support services for diabetics | Hancock County Journal-Pilot

Diabetes News

In 1987, the Hancock County Volunteers for Diabetes was formed in an effort to provide a variety of support services to diabetics living in Hancock County. The volunteers have been able to provide a limited amount of financial support for diabetes medications or supplies, lab work, eye or dental exams, nutrition counseling or other special needs. Over the years, the Volunteers for Diabetes have also planned the Annual Diabetes Spotlight, a day-long educational event, typically held in November. This event is particularly beneficial for diabetics and their families, as there are presentations on diabetes topics and educational information distributed by exhibitors. Years ago the volunteers sponsored a Diabetes Support group. The volunteers are hopeful to begin offering a Diabetes Support Group to diabetics and their families in the near future.
