Take Charge of Your Diabetes During the Holidays

November is National Diabetes Month, and for the 24 million Americans who have diabetes, this time of year can be more difficult to manage. Ohio State University Extension will be offering a special Take Charge of Your Diabetes During the Holidays program. Those with diabetes or pre-diabetes and their family members or caretakers are encouraged to attend and learn how to stay healthy during the holidays.

Preparing nutritious foods that taste good can be difficult at any time of the year. Take Charge of Your Diabetes During the Holidays will provide you with tips for managing your diabetes during the holidays. You will learn how to prepare favorite holiday foods that are both nutritious and delicious. Cooking demonstrations and dinner will be provided.
