Ohio State University Extension and the Coshocton Regional Medical Center 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 four Monday evenings of April (April 6, 13, 20, 27) from 5:30-7:30 pm at Coshocton Regional Medical Center, 1460 Orange 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. You are encouraged to also register a support person to attend with you for an additional $5 total. Classes will be taught by Emily Marrison, OSU Extension educator; Kate Shumaker, OSU Extension educator and registered dietitian; Christine Kendle, OSU Extension educator and registered dietitian; and Cindy Hillbish, registered dietitian with 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 23. Registration is limited to 20 participants.
