Dining with Diabetes online class

Do you, or a loved one, suffer from diabetes? Educators and researchers at OSU Extension, Family and Consumer Sciences have developed a free online course to help participants learn about managing diabetes called Dining with Diabetes: Beyond the Kitchen. The easy-to-follow online class can be done at a participants own pace and includes lessons, videos, and activities about carbohydrates, fats, sodium, vitamins, minerals and fiber. Participants can expect to learn:

  • How important blood sugar and carbohydrates are for managing diabetes.
  • How fats and sodium affect a healthy diet.
  • The role vitamins, minerals and fiber play in a healthy diet.
  • How to make healthy food choices when eating out and grocery shopping.

After completion of the course, participants will receive a printable certificate and will automatically be entered in a quarterly drawing for a $100 Amazon.com gift card.
