Gestational Diabetes Support Group

Hearing that you have gestational diabetes can be scary, BUT, you are not alone. With conversation and support from others, you will learn how to cope with your emotions and take care of yourself!

The Wyandotte County Public Health Department is hosting support group sessions to discuss Gestational Diabetes. This is an opportunity for pregnant women who have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, along with their primary support person to join in the conversation with you.

There will be two sessions held at the Health Department located at 619 Ann Avenue in Kansas City, Kansas from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm:

  • English Speaking Group – 1st Thursday of every month
  • Spanish Speaking Group – 2nd Thursday of every month

The following topics will be discussed…

What is gestational diabetes?
Managing feelings related to the diagnosis
Caring for gestational diabetes

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 32 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard.I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".Contact me directly at for scheduling information.
