Diabetes Support Groups

in Santa Clara County

I've been frustrated in my search for a diabetes support group - it almost seems
that the people who offer the groups are trying to keep them hidden.  Anyway, I decided that
this was something I could fix by posting the information I find on my website.

I have just started compiling this list, so the information is incomplete. 
If anyone has corrections or a group to add,
please send email to
