Purdue Extension offers Dining with Diabetes Beginning April 6


Do you have type 2 diabetes? Would you like to learn more about your disease and how to live well while reducing your health risks? If so, Purdue Extension has a great program for you!

The Purdue Extension – Washington County office will be offering a virtual Dining with Diabetes program beginning April 6 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm via Zoom. 

Dining with Diabetes is a series of five sessions, which includes a three-month reunion session.

The Dining with Diabetes program is open to those with diabetes, their family members, and caretakers. The series of five sessions is $10 per household if registered before March 19, and $15 per household if registered after March 19.

Registrations need to be submitted by March 30. Pre-registration and payment are required. Participants are encouraged to attend all class sessions.

Diabetes is a very serious and costly disease. However, research has shown that those who learn to manage their blood glucose (sugar) levels by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, can lower their risks of complications and help to lead a healthier and more productive life.

Dining with Diabetes is offered statewide and is sponsored by Purdue Extension.

Meeting dates and topics covered are as follows:

  • April 6: What is diabetes? /Snacks & appetizers 
  • April 13: Carbs & sweeteners /Desserts
