Diabetes Support Network: Fall 2022Mixed vegetables

Living with and managing diabetes, as well as managing a person's overall nutrition habits, is not always an easy task for many individuals. Rather than feeling alone during your journey with diabetes and/or supporting those with diabetes, or just simply trying to get a handle on your overall nutrition, Harper College has formed a network to allow individuals from Harper who are living with diabetes (or are helping someone manage their own diabetes), as well as folks who are just looking to improve their overall nutrition, to come together to share their stories, experiences and resources. The group is led and managed by a registered dietitian, Mia Greco, MSNW, MPH, RD, LDN and Adjunct Faculty/Clinical Supervisor in the Nutrition Department at Harper College. 

The group meets monthly. Attendance at all of the meetings is not mandatory. Attend as your schedule allows. WebEx meeting or in-person meeting invites will be sent to participants after they have registered.

Fall 2022 Semester Meeting Dates:

TBD. Stay tuned for Fall 2022 dates.

Please complete the Diabetes Support Network form in order to be included on the WebEx invites and other communications.
