Diabetes Education & Support Group 

Talking with other people who share the challenges of day-to-day living with diabetes can be helpful. That is why many individuals with either newly diagnosed or long-term diabetes join our group. In addition, we offer education programs to help people keep up-to-date on current tools and techniques for managing diabetes.

We meet the second Monday of each month from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm in conference rooms C/D at Pullman Regional Hospital. Meeting facilitator is Marilyn Burch, RD, CD.

If you have any questions please call or email Marilyn Burch at (509) 336-7543 or email at marilyn.burch@pullmanregional.org. Our meetings are open to everyone. Group meeting are being postponed until further notice. Thank you. 

 

Fibromyalgia Lupus Education & Support Group 

Fibromyalgia and Lupus Education & Support Group is designed to provide a confidential, caring, non-threatening environment where people can share their concerns, fears, strengths, and hopes. It is not designed to provide professional therapy. The purpose of the group is to provide information, education, awareness, and support. FLSG provides an opportunity to reach out to others who have had similar challenges and fosters an improved understanding of lifestyle management. Spouses, partners, and caregivers are welcome to attend the education meetings.

Meetings are held every fourth Tuesday of the month in conference rooms A/B of Pullman Regional Hospital from 4:30 to 5:30 pm. If you have any questions please call or email Noel Nicolai at (509) 336-7404 or at Noel.Nicolai@pullmanregional.org.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Support Group

More than just a bump on the head!  Though not always visible and sometimes seemingly minor, head injury is complex. In many cases recovery becomes a lifelong process of adjustments and accommodations for the injured person and the family.   Education is part of the advocacy process by which you can build awareness and acceptance. This group can also help match services and programs with your strengths and needs, develop partnerships with professionals and  work toward changing the system.  With the support and help of others, you and your family will be able to set out in a new, rewarding direction. 

Join us on the 4th Monday of the month between 6pm and 8pm in Conference Room C of Pullman Regional Hospital.


Work in Progress AA Group
