Gundersen Health System to host diabetes support group

LA CROSSE (WKBT) – Gundersen Health System is lending a helping hand to those with diabetes.

On Dec. 13, Gundersen will host a free diabetes support group at the YMCA in La Crosse.

Specialists say they want people to know they’re not alone.

“There are many people that are living with diabetes,” said Gundersen Health System Wellness Education Specialist Shayna Schertz. “We might not know it so I think to offer support and to let people know that they are not alone and that there’s support within our community, there’s support within family, friends ”

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. next month at the Dahl Family La Crosse YMCA.
