Cleveland Clinic Akron General will offer a two-part cooking series, “Dining with Diabetes,” on Sept. 11 and 18, both Wednesdays, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Akron General, Atwood/Frasche Classroom, Ground Floor, 1 Akron General Ave., in downtown Akron.
The classes are for people who have diabetes and pre-diabetes, who are at risk for diabetes or who cook for people with diabetes. The classes are presented by certified diabetes educators and a chef, and include cooking demonstrations.
Attendees will learn how to prepare healthy meals – using less fat, salt and fewer carbohydrates/sugar without sacrificing flavor – and be able to taste a variety of main dishes, sides and desserts. Cost is $10 for the two classes.
Registration is required. Call (330) 344-7791 or visit akrongeneral.org/events and search for “Dining with Diabetes.”
