BRIDGEPORT  — St. Vincent's Medical Center and Animas Corporation, a Johnson & Johnson Company, are co-sponsoring a new monthly Diabetes Support Group at the hospital. Participants will learn important information regarding coping with diabetes and improving lifestyle, and will have the opportunity to share tips with other people with diabetes to overcome challenges and frustration.   The group, which is free, is facilitated by a St. Vincent's nurse and Animas representative both specializing in diabetes.


Topics to be addressed monthly include diet, meal planning and carb counting, monitoring blood glucose levels, administration of insulin through injection or pump,   flexibility in daily regimens and exercise.


 The Support Group meetings will be held on Wednesdays from 6-7:30pm in St. Vincent's Level 3 South Conference Room. Upcoming date is: May 25.
