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 go.osu.edu/coshoctondwd or contact OSU Extension at 740-622-2265 for more information.
