Support Groups

Sharing, support, and problem-solving are important components of our quarterly support group meetings. Groups are available to address general diabetes topics of interest.

Diabetes Risk Assessments

Diabetes risk assessments are available throughout our service area for individuals who are concerned they may have diabetes or are at high risk.

Children's Campership Program

The Regional Diabetes Center Campership Fund gives children with diabetes the opportunity to attend a specialized camp where they will discover more about their condition and learn they're not all that different from their friends and siblings. Here, not only do campers have diabetes, so do many of the counselors. All camps are based on a positive approach to living with diabetes. Campers are exposed to new methods of diabetes self-management, coping strategies and new technologies.

Children ages 6 to 16 may apply for Campership funds by submitting an essay to be judged by our Center's certified diabetes educators. The Campership program was created by the Glens Falls Hospital Foundation through the generosity of Joe and Janet McDowell of Chestertown.

For more information or an application form, please call (518) 926-2613.
