Dining with Diabetes
Dining with Diabetes is a free once-a-week class that runs for four consecutive weeks. A follow-up class is scheduled three to four months later. Participants must attend all class sessions. This course is open to individuals with diabetes, or pre-diabetes, and their family members.
Classes cover how to prepare easy, healthy, and tasty meals, and watch live cooking demonstrations. You will also learn up-to-date information on nutrition, meal planning, exercise, and how to understand common diabetes-related medical tests. Recipes and handouts will be given to each participant.
If you have questions, or would like to be contacted when the next course is scheduled, please call the Berkeley County Extension Office or send email to Angela Lawrence, the Berkeley-Jefferson Family and Community Development Extension Agent.
