Dining with Diabetes class being offered at Meck Senior Center
Learning that you have diabetes can be overwhelming at first. There are many new things to learn and it can be difficult to know where to start.
Dining with Diabetes is a program offered by Penn State Extension. It will help attendees understand some of the most important things you need to know about how to manage your diabetes.
Educators will lead discussions addressing: Important numbers you need to know, planning healthy meals, healthy food preparation and physical activity.
Classes are offered weekly for four weeks, with a three-month follow-up class. Each class offers food demonstrations and tastings, physical activity, ideas to take home and discussions regarding important information to help you manage your diabetes. Lab tests will be offered to measure A1c.
In addition to class handouts and test results, participants also receive a variety of resources, including a complete collection of Dining with Diabetes recipes. If you have been told that you have Type 2 diabetes, you will want to attend this class.
The first class will be held from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. June 6 at the George C. Meck Senior Center, East Lycoming YMCA, 50 Fitness Road, Muncy.
