Adult Support Group

Adult Support Group AttendeesHeld the first or second Thursday of each month, the Adult Support Group was created to bring information and skills directly to the Hawaii community to assist with daily management of diabetes and/or to prevent diabetes.

At each meeting, an Association volunteer in the medical community discusses a topic related to diabetes (see below) and is available to answer questions from the group.

All meetings are from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Association's Hawaii office in Pioneer Plaza (unless otherwise specified). We welcome anyone and everyone to attend—and to bring a friend and/or family member.
