Now that challenges of holiday foods and rich desserts are over, a community-wide holistic diabetes support group is forming at Congregation Sherith Israel to help diabetics and their family members with matters related to food, menus, nutrition and more.  

Headed by Polina Vorobeychik, a licensed dietitian nutritionist with a master’s degree in public health, the group will have its first meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 8th at at Sherith Israel. 

The group will provide a space for people who have diabetes or pre-diabetes – and their family members – to discuss challenges and successes of managing this chronic illness. The group will focus its discussion on food choices, recipes, exercise, and balanced, tasty menus that the whole family can enjoy. Also, the group will have guest speakers on topics related to diabetes management, such as eye care, foot care, cardiovascular health and kidney health.
