This free program complements medical care by teaching people with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, and their family members and caregivers what they can do to help control blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol. UMaine Extension registered dietitian and nutritionist Alan Majka will provide presentations, lead discussions and demonstrate preparation of nutritious recipes that participants can sample.
Participants will meet once a week for four weeks. You will learn how to select and prepare foods that help to control blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure. There will be an opportunity to taste a variety of main dishes, side dishes, and desserts.
This event occurs over four consecutive Thursdays, starting June 1 and ending June 22.
