When you need someone to turn to for help with your diabetes, Novant Health UVA Health System will be there. We know that fighting the effects of diabetes can be a challenge for you and your family, and we are devoted to helping our communities fight back against this disease by providing precise diagnoses and effective treatments.
We stress the importance of self-management and feel that knowledge is the most powerful prescription when it comes to fighting diabetes. We offer a variety of programs that can teach you how to curb the disease’s impact in your daily life, including:
Living well with diabetes

Diabetes support groups
Meetings occur every other month on the third Thursday from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at Prince William Medical Center. A guest speaker will often present information and there will also be time for sharing and socializing. These mini-seminars are free and open to the public at our wellness center.
