In honor of National Diabetes Month in November, a special program will be offered at the OSF St. James – John W. Albrecht Medical Center.

The Diabetes Support Group meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3, will feature the program “Lessons I’ve Learned on My Journey to Good Health,” presented by Dr. Heather Dameron Schweizer, director of physician practice for OSF Medical Group.

Schweizer has achieved an amazing transformation in her own health, according to an OSF news release about her presentation. She will share advice on ways she has learned to cope with the stumbling blocks to maintaining weight loss and good heart health.

The program will be in the main floor conference room, where there is adequate room for physical distancing. A brief health screening will be completed for each guest upon arrival, and masks will be required.

Registration is not required. For information, call Sherri Schlatter, diabetes educator, at 815-842-4970.
