‘Dining With Diabetes’ workshop to begin on January 10th

The St. Joseph County MSU Extension Office will be offering Dining with Diabetes, a five-session course designed for people at risk of diabetes or who have diabetes, as well as their family members.

The session will begin on Thursday, January 10 to January 31, 1:30 – 3:30 pm, with the final session April 10 at the MSU Extension office, 612 E. Main St., Centreville, MI.  Diana Fair, Extension Educator with St. Joseph County MSU Extension will be conducting the series.

Participants will learn how to prepare meals that are healthy using less fat, sodium and sugar without reducing flavor and enjoyment.  Participants will also learn tools for managing diabetes and the importance of diet and exercise in managing diabetes. Each participant will have the opportunity to sample a variety of healthy foods and will receive a notebook with the recipes and educational hand-outs.

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 more information or to register for this program please call the St. Joseph County MSU Extension Office at 269-467-5522 by January 3rd.  Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
