Ohio State University Extension and the Coshocton Regional Medical Center will be offering Dining with Diabetes, 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 participants learn healthy techniques to use in their own kitchens. The program includes sampling healthy foods and discussion with a dietitian or certified diabetes educator about skills to manage diabetes.

Dining with Diabetes will be held the four Monday evenings of April (April 6, 13, 20, 27) from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Coshocton Regional Medical Center, 1460 Orange St., Coshocton. The cost of the program is $20 per person and includes all four classes, educational handouts, and small sized meals that feature a variety of recipes. You are encouraged to also register a support person to attend with you for an additional $5 total. Classes will be taught by Emily Marrison, OSU Extension educator; Kate Shumaker, OSU Extension educator and registered dietitian; Christine Kendle, OSU Extension educator and registered dietitian; and Cindy Hillbish, registered dietitian with the Coshocton County Health Department.

Those with diabetes or pre-diabetes and their family members or caretakers are encouraged to attend. Paid registration is required by March 23. Registration is limited to 20 participants. To register visit coshocton.osu.edu or contact OSU Extension at 740-622-2265 for information.
