More About Dining with Diabetes

Classes will be held March 1, 8, 22, and 29, 2018, with the follow-up on May 31, 2018.
Dining with Diabetes is a nationally accredited program for adults with or at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Family members and/or friends are also invited to attend the program. Classes are offered weekly for four weeks, with a three month follow-up. This class, a $200 value, is offered at $5. Participants learn how to prepare meals that are healthy, simple, and tasty. Participants will have the opportunity to help prepare recipes and sample the foods, and will also learn up to date information on nurition, planning, and important diabetes-related medical tests.
A1C, a measure of blood glucose levels (a $35 value) and blood pressure will be taken at the first and follow-up classes. Participants are also given incentives such as an exercise DVD, plate method placemat, and a Dining with Diabetes Cookbook.
After taking the class 50% of participants experienced a drop in A1C and 59% saw a drop in blood pressure. Participants also increased their daily physical activity and fruit and vegetable intake, and were more confident that they could keep their diabetes under control.
Diabetes is a very serious and costly disease, but research has shown that those who learn to manage their blood glucose (sugar) levels, eat healthy, and exercise regularly can lower their risk of complications and lead a healthier and more productive life. For individuals with pre-diabetes,lifestyle modification information learned in this class can prevent individuals from developing type 2 diabetes and the complications associated with it.

Preregistration is required due to space.
