Mind-Body Skills Groups offer significant benefits for people with cancer,
depression/anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, fertility
issues, arthritis, diabetes, and post-traumatic stress. In addition, Mind-Body
Skills groups also benefit people dealing with stressful life changes
including separation, divorce, bereavement, and menopause.
“Learning skills and strategies to balance life’s stress, including
managing diabetes, is essential to living well with a chronic health issue,”
said Catherine Cullinane, RN, Certified Diabetes Nurse Educator and Coordinator
of St. John's Diabetes Education. “I’m excited to have
this program available at St. John’s for our community,” she said.
Maureen Molinari, MS, RD, LD, CDE, is currently pursuing a PhD in Mind-Body
