Ohio State University Extension will be offering Dining with Diabetes, a cooking school and nutrition education program designed for people with diabetes and their family members or caregivers. In a series of four classes, cooking demonstrations will help participants learn healthy techniques to use in their own kitchens. The program includes sampling healthy foods and discussion with a dietitian or certified diabetes educator about skills to manage diabetes.

Dining with Diabetes will be held the first four Monday evenings of April, (April 1, 8, 15, 22) from 5:30-7:30 pm at Roscoe Untied Methodist Church, 475 High Street, Coshocton.  The cost of the program is $20 per person and includes all four classes, educational handouts, and small sized meals that feature a variety of recipes. Classes will be taught by Emily Marrison, OSU Extension educator; Daniel Remley, OSU Extension Field Specialist: Food, Nutrition and Wellness; and a registered dietitian from the Coshocton County Health Department.

Those with diabetes or pre-diabetes and their family members or caretakers are encouraged to attend. Paid registration is required by March 22. Registration is limited to 20 participants. Find a registration form here or contact OSU Extension at 740-622-2265 with questions.
