  • Northern Ny State Support Group meeting

    Now that our snow has finally melted, we have scheduled our next IC Support Group meeting for June 12 at 6 p.m. in the Lewis County General Hospital Medical Arts Building in Lowville NY. All are welcome to join us and we are encouraging spouses/significant others to join us as we discuss how IC affects our daily lives and share coping skills.
    Northern NY state has a great IC Support Group!
