Dining with Diabetes Program

Uncontrolled blood glucose can lead to complications of diabetes, such as blindness, nerve damage, kidney failure and amputations. The first step in controlling blood glucose is careful meal planning. This is also the most difficult step. Dining with Diabetes is a class aimed at helping individuals learn to reduce sugar, salt and fat in foods without giving up good taste. The program provides information which includes learning, demonstrations and tasting of healthy foods, plus exercise instructions.

The Dining with Diabetes Program is offered by Wayne HealthCare and The Ohio State University Extension on Tuesday, August 30, 2011 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

The program will be held at the OSU Learning Center at 603 Wagner Avenue, Greenville, Ohio.

There is a $15 fee per person to attend the class which covers the cost of foods demonstrated and tasted, recipe booklets and other educational materials. This is a program designed for people with diabetes/pre-diabetes and their family members. Attendance is limited to 30 people. The deadline for registration is August 25, 2011. If you have questions and to register for class, call 937-548-5215.

Instructors for the course are Diane Barga, Program Assistant, Ohio State University Extension, and Karen Droesch, Diabetes Educator, Wayne HealthCare.
