The meeting is 5-7 p.m. Monday, April 14 in the Nambe Room in Fuller Lodge.  

Dr. Blake will address diabetic foot conditions and his recently opened neuropathy clinic with cutting edge treatment to reverse the conditions of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. 

Dr. Blake, board certified American Board of Podiatric Surgery Fellow, American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, has been practicing in New Mexico as a foot and ankle specialist since 2002. As owner of Foot & Ankle Associates, it is his goal to provide fully comprehensive foot and ankle care to the people of northern New Mexico.

The Diabetes Support Group is open to anyone who has diabetes, including family, friends and others in a supporting role. Participants can learn more about diabetes, or reinforce what they already know. 

The purpose of the Diabetes Support Group is to help those dealing with diabetes live with and manage their chronic condition. It also wants to attract people who would like emotional support for living with diabetes, as well as those who would like to learn some strategies for managing diabetes. Each support group meeting is topic oriented and members discuss the topic and related issues during the meeting. 

The Los Alamos Cooperative Extension Service (LACES) sponsors this free Diabetes Support Group. Mary Beugelsdijk, certified diabetes educator, and Paula Roybal Sánchez, extension home economist, provide leadership to the group.
