Cook healthy and tasty meals with the help of WVU Extension’s free course.
WV Living Healthy Sponsored by PracticeLink
DIABETES CAN LEAD TO OTHER SERIOUS CONDITIONS, but it doesn’t have to: Many of the complications of diabetes can be controlled or even prevented through healthy lifestyle choices.
To help with healthier eating habits, WVU Extension is offering Dining with Diabetes, a free series of classes that run once a week for four consecutive weeks.
Participants learn how to prepare meals that are healthy, easy to make, and tasty. Each class includes live cooking demonstrations, and instructors share recipes and provide up-to-date information on nutrition and meal planning. The classes cover other useful information, too, about exercise and how to understand common diabetes-related medical tests.
Register for an upcoming series—courses are scheduled in Parkersburg and Oak Hill starting in March, with more courses to be scheduled in locations across the state. Registration is open to those who have diabetes or pre-diabetes and their family members and caregivers.
Or plan to attend a course online. Virtual classes will take place every Wednesday in April, October, and November in 2023. All you need is a computer or mobile device that has internet access in order to participate.
