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 about skills to manage diabetes.

Dining with Diabetes will be held on Thursday evenings August 19, August 26, September 2, and September 9 from 5:30-7:30 pm. Two classes will be at Coshocton Regional Medical Center and two classes will involve hands-on meal preparation at Kno-Ho-Co Community Action, 120 N 4th Street.  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 $10 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 August 11. Registration is limited to 20 participants. Register now or contact Emily Marrison at 740-622-2265 for more information.
