Ohio State University Extension and 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 Monday evenings July 10, 17, 24, and 31 from 5:30-7:30 pm. Two classes will be at Coshocton Regional Medical Center and two classes will involve demonstration meal preparation at another community location. 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. Classes will be taught by Leslie Mayle, registered dietitian at Coshocton Regional Medical Center, Emily Marrison, OSU Extension educator; and Kate Shumaker, OSU Extension educator and registered dietitian.

Those with diabetes or pre-diabetes and their family members or caretakers are encouraged to attend. Paid registration is required by July 5. Registration is limited to 20 participants. To register visit or contact OSU Extension at 740-622-2265 for more information.
