Penn State Extension is offering a diabetes management program this month at Salvation Army in York.
“Dining with Diabetes: A Program for Adults with Diabetes and their Families” aims to teach people with Type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes how to manage their condition.
The class runs 1 to 3:30 p.m. March 14, March 21, April 4 and April 11, with a follow-up class May 30.
Curriculum includes how to make lifestyle choices to best control diabetes, decrease blood sugar and insulin resistance and make the most of the body’s remaining insulin production.
Participants receive a blood test, recipes, an exercise DVD, educational materials, a pedometer and stretch bands. Classes include food demonstrations, light physical activity and discussions.
The classes cost $40 per person or $55 for a family of two. Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries may enroll for free. The deadline has been extended to March 14.
