Diabetes Support Group
•Enlighten each other on treatments and practices
Prevea Endocrinology offers a monthly support group that focuses on living well with diabetes. The group will be open to anyone in the Sheboygan community with diabetes and their support person. The purpose of the group will be to:
•Provide resources and education with guest speakers
•Offer support and an open forum to discuss stressors
•Suggest successful tactics that may help others
Diabetes is a disease that affects many areas of a person's daily life and group support can bring ideas to improve management, or provide an outlet for frustrations. Meeting with other patients who share similar experiences can be helpful for coping with this chronic disease.
This support group meets the first Thursday of each month. Pre-registration is encouraged but not required.
Grief is a feeling of distress caused by separation or loss of a loved one, a job, a dream, or more. It's important to know that everyone grieves in their own way and there are different stages of grief.
We're here to help people cope with their grief and provide a better understanding of the grieving process.
Hope After Loss Organization - HALO Support Group
When babies come into our lives and are too quickly and quietly gone, they leave lasting footprints on our hearts. At St. Nicholas Hospital, we believe those lives are precious and should be honored and remembered no matter how brief their life was.

The HALO support group meets the first Thursday of the month at St. Nicholas Hospital. For more information about this program, please contact 920-457-5770, and ask to speak to a HALO representative.
Living Beyond Prostate Cancer
This support group provides men with information about prostate cancer, treatment, side effects, and how to cope with the disease and its treatment. Men can share their concerns at this free forum. Registration is not required.
Look Good...Feel Better
Women who are currently undergoing treatment for a cancer diagnosis are encouraged to attend. Only program participants may attend the workshop. Due to confidentiality and comfort level of the patients, as well as space restrictions, this protocol is necessary. This ensures that the participant receives full attention to gain the skills and confidence for increased independence.
A patient may attend more than one workshop, however, she should bring her LGFB cosmetic kit with her to the additional workshop. Patients with a recurrence of cancer and who are receiving another round of treatment may attend another workshop and receive a new cosmetic kit.
Registration is required.
