WorkLife program to offer assistance with managing diabetes

April 6, 2011

A new session of a popular program focused on managing diabetes is starting soon. Karen Hosterman-Sabel, a WorkLife Programs registered dietitian, will facilitate.

Dining with Diabetes will be held 4:30-6:30 p.m. Mondays from April 11 to May 16 in Stone Hall, Room 232.

In the program, WorkLife Programs and Purdue Extension will combine for a positive and proactive team approach to help manage diabetes. The six-week series will provide weekly interactive food preparation demonstrations, tastings, and opportunities to participate in self-management skills and techniques.

Sessions will include information about snacks, carbohydrates and sweeteners, fats and sodium, and vitamins and fiber, along with food preparation of snacks, desserts, main dishes and side dishes. Another session is planned for glucometers and diabetes medication updates. Each participant will receive a binder with information and recipes.
