The Affect of Diabetes on Men and Women’s Relationships Presentation

St. Elizabeth’s Hospital’s Diabetes Support Group welcomes Chris Lynch, PharmD, BCACP, for an in-depth discussion on how Diabetes can affect the relationship between men and women. The presentations will be held in the Millennium Room of the hospital, 340 West Lincoln Street, on Tuesday, June 10 at 5:00 p.m. and on Thursday, June 12 at 12:00 p.m.

Chris Lynch received his bachelor and doctorate in pharmacy from the St. Louis College of Pharmacy and completed a Residency in Family Medicine with St. John’s Mercy Medical Center. For twelve years, he served as Director of Pharmacy for Diabetes Operations at Charity Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. Currently, he is a Professor of Pharmacy Practice and Director of Clinical Programs at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Pharmacy. His clinical practice is caring for homebound seniors in southern Illinois and helping them manage their medication regimens.
The Diabetes Support Group at St. Elizabeth’s is a FREE service to the community where those affected by Diabetes can get information and motivation to make positive changes for their health. A Registered Dietitian, Haley Reichmann, and Pharmacy Director, Julia Schimmelfennig, lead the group. Family members are also encouraged to come to learn about diabetes and how support and understanding play an important part of controlling diabetes for patients.

There are two monthly diabetes support groups for adults. Each features a variety of diabetes-related topics presented by various speakers. They are free and open to anyone. Additional group outings (transportation included) may be scheduled for special events and education. Members of the Diabetes Support Group also have access to St. Elizabeth's Gym two exercise sessions each week (monitored by appropriate staff) and additional access for free as their schedule permits.

Call 618-641-5498 to register for this upcoming presentation or to learn more about the Diabetes Support Group at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital.
