BOWLING GREEN, OH, December 13, 2018 – The Wood County Extension Office will be conducting a Dining with Diabetes series for 2019 beginning in January.
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, participants learn how to incorporate good, healthy cooking techniques and other practices into their own kitchens to help manage their blood glucose.
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. The program is sponsored by Ohio State University Extension Family and Consumer Sciences.
At Dining with Diabetes, you will:
- Watch live cooking demos
- Sample delicious food
- Gain new insights on healthy eating
- Learn new skills to manage your diabetes
Who would most benefit this program?
Anyone with concerns about diabetes or interested in controlling blood sugar, as well as a family member, friend, caregiver, or other support person.

There is no cost to attend the classes for Wood County residents, however seating is limited and on a first-come basis. For residents outside of Wood County, there is a $40/person registration fee.
