Extension offers ‘Dining with Diabetes’
Webinar begins Tuesday
UNIVERSITY PARK — Individuals who want to learn how to better manage diabetes now can take a webinar offered by Penn State Extension.
“Dining with Diabetes” is a diabetes education program taught by extension educators across Pennsylvania.
It is geared toward anyone who has type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, has a family member with type 2 diabetes or is at risk for developing diabetes.
The webinar program will be held from 6 to 7:15 p.m. Jan. 12, 19 and 26 with a follow-up class on April 13.
The course is divided into five sections: what is diabetes; meal planning, serving sizes and carbohydrate counting; heart-healthy eating; medications, monitoring and goal setting; and dining out. Each section will provide participants with valuable information designed to help manage diabetes.
The sections are designed to be viewed individually, so participants can choose the order in which they move through the course.
Booklets and supplementary handouts can be found in each section and can be viewed as often as needed.
