BRIDGEPORT  —St. Vincent’s Medical Center and Animas Corp., a Johnson & Johnson company, are co-sponsoring a new monthly Diabetes Support Group at the hospital, according to a statement.

The group, which is free, is facilitated by a St. Vincent’s nurse and Animas representative both specializing in diabetes, the statement said.
