WHAT IS DINING WITH DIABETES?

Dining with Diabetes is 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 you learn healthy techniques to use in your own kitchen. The program includes sampling healthy foods and discussion with a dietitian or certified diabetes educator, plus a follow-up reunion class held at a later date.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Anyone with concerns about diabetes or anyone interested in controlling blood sugar is encouraged to participate and to bring a family member, friend, caregiver, or other support person.
