Taking Steps Toward Diabetes Prevention and Treatment
CAMBRIDGE, Ohio, Nov. 3, 2010 – November is American Diabetes Month, and to celebrate, the diabetes educators at Southeastern Med will present Celebrate Diabetes and the Holidays on Monday, Nov. 15 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., in Southeastern Med’s Morrison, Amos and Deddish rooms.
The evening will begin with a Diabetes Fair from 5:30 to 6:30 pm, featuring vendors from diabetes supply companies and area programs and services of interest to people with diabetes. The fair is free and open to the public.
After the fair, join Southeastern Med’s Outpatient Dietitian and Diabetes Educator, Sharon Graff-Harrison, MS, RD, LD, CDE, at Celebrate Diabetes and the Holidays Too to learn how to prepare healthy versions of traditional holiday recipes and sample new recipes.
“Think healthy lifestyle, not restrictions to build a healthier body,” said Graff-Harrison. “Those with diabetes can eat, drink and be merry in appropriate portions and moderate amounts. Although you may have diabetes, everyday can still be a holiday celebration.”
Registration is required for the Celebrate Diabetes and the Holidays Too portion of the evening and participation is limited. For more information or to register, call the Wellness Resources Department at Southeastern Med at 740-435-2946.
