Program Description

A Program for People with Diabetes and Their Families

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.

Dining with Diabetes Down East makes diabetes meal planning easy by using the plate method. For more information on the plate method please visit:  https://extension.umaine.edu/food-health/dining-with-diabetes/
