Diabetes Support Group to Discuss Medication at Next Meeting

Humboldt General Hospital's Diabetes Support Group will discuss medications in September.

"Diabetes Medications: Everything You Need to Know" will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 4, in the hospital's Sonoma conference room.

Humboldt General Hospital welcomes Pharmacist Robert Hall as the evening's guest presenter.

There is no charge to attend, and all ages are welcome.

According to Humboldt General Hospital Director of Nutrition and Dietary Services and Licensed Dietitian Tiffani Nalivka, diabetes medications can improve people's ability to keep their blood sugar within a target range.

Nalivka said, "These medications are powerful tools that can help manage blood sugar and delay or prevent complications."

Wednesday's presentation is open to diabetics, pre-diabetics, caregivers and those who are interested in preventing diabetes are invited to learn more.

For more information, please contact Nalivka at (775) 623-5222, ext. 1756 or via email at nalivkat@hghospital.ws.
