DINing with diabetes 2021 classes

Register for Dining with Diabetes August/September 2021 Classes


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.

Next classes will be August 19, August 26, September 2, and September 9, 2021. The first and fourth classes will be held at Coshocton Regional Medical Center. The second and thrid classes will be at Rosoce United Methodist Church with hands-on meal preparation. Please contact Emily Marrison at for more information.
