As we wait for the ability to teach in-person classes, please check out this free, self-paced, online course: Dining with Diabetes Beyond the Kitchen



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.


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.

The last classes were offered October/November 2020. Next classes will be scheduled for 2021. Please contact Emily Marrison at marrison.12@osu.edu for more information.
