Free Dining with Diabetes class in Lock Haven
LOCK HAVEN — Learning that you or a loved one has diabetes can be overwhelming at first. There are many new things to learn and it can be difficult to know where to start.
Dining with Diabetes is a program offered by Penn State Extension.
It will help you to understand some of the most important things you need to know about how to manage your diabetes.
Extension Educators will lead discussions addressing:
— Important numbers you need to know

Classes are offered weekly for four weeks, with a three-month follow-up class. Class dates are Fridays, Nov. 1, 8, 15 and 22 from noon-2 p.m. at the Anne Halenbake Ross Library, 232 W. Main St. In Lock Haven.
Each class offers food demonstrations and tastings, physical activity, ideas to take home, and discussions regarding important information to help you manage your diabetes. Lab tests will be offered to measure A1c.
In addition to class handouts and test results, participants also receive a variety of resources, including a complete collection of Dining with Diabetes recipes. If you have been told that you have pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes, you will want to attend this class.
