The Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center will host “Dining with Diabetes”, a program for people with diabetes and their families. The program is free to those who register, and participants are expected to attend all the sessions.
The program will offer practical information to assist diabetics and help them lead a healthier lifestyle such as: current diabetes information, nutrition practices, recipe demonstrations, food tasting, blood pressure tests, exercise components, and stress management.
Anyone interested in registering for these classes should call the Harrison County Extension Office at 304-624-8650 or LaTasha Valentino at 304-623-3461, ext. 2296. Spaces are limited!
The program will be held at the VA Medical Center in Clarksburg in Room 4A-459 each Wednesday in March (1st, 8th, 15th, & 22nd) from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. A follow-up session will be held on Wed., May 3, 2017 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Dining with Diabetes is being implemented through a partnership between the WVU Extension Service and the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center. It is not intended to replace diabetes education provided by qualified health care professionals such as Certified Diabetes Educators or Registered Dietitians.
