Dining with Diabetes logo

November is Diabetes awareness month. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that nearly 1.6 million Americans have diabetes, including about 187,000 children and adolescents. Diabetes affects people of all ages, races, shapes, and sizes. Learning as much as you can about the condition, and working closely with your diabetes healthcare team can give you everything you need to thrive and be well.

Family and Consumer Sciences agents with N.C. Cooperative Extension in Caswell, Chatham, Orange, Randolph, and Rowan Counties will team together to present Dining with Diabetes.

Dining with Diabetes is a nutrition education program designed for people with diabetes and their family members or caregivers.

In a series of four classes, program participants will learn about and discuss:

  1. Living Well with Diabetes
  2. Carbohydrates and Sweeteners
  3. Fats and Sodium
  4. Vitamins, Minerals, Fiber, and Putting it All Together

There will also be food demonstrations and the opportunity to ask a Registered Dietician your diabetes-related questions. Following a careful meal plan is the first step in managing diabetes and keeping blood sugars in a therapeutic range. This is also the hardest step in diabetes management. Dining withDiabetes helps by teaching persons with diabetes ways to reduce sugar, salt, and fat in foods, without giving up good taste.

Who Should Attend?
Anyone with concerns about diabetes or anyone interested in controlling blood sugar is encouraged to attend, along with a family member, friend, caregiver, or another support person. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this program will be offered on a virtual platform. The classes are “free”; however, you must preregister through Eventbrite. Once we have received your registration we will provide you with the Zoom link to join the sessions closer to the start date. The four 1-hour sessions will take place on November 10, 17, 24, and December 1, 2020, from 10–11 a.m.
