In our effort to promote community wellness, we sponsor and co-sponsor a wide range of FREE support groups. Support groups provide an opportunity or persons with health-related problems to express their feelings and talk with others in similar circumstances. Our facilitators also invite speakers who provide knowledgeable, up-to-date advice and counsel to assist individuals and families who are experiencing these diseases or problems. We believe that emotional and physical well-being go hand-in-hand.
