Bay Park Community Hospital will host a free diabetes educational class titled, “Carbohydrates Do Count,” Tuesday, July 29 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Michigan/Superior rooms of the Great Lakes Conference Center.

This meal-planning session is geared toward people with type 2 diabetes. It will cover the effects carbohydrates have on blood sugar levels, as well as making healthy food choices through correct portion sizes. A free guide will be given to participants on carbohydrate choices for meals and snacks.

 

According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), 20.8 million people in the United States have diabetes and nearly one-third of this group are unaware they have the disease.

Pat Misthal, RN, BSN, CDE, supervisor of the Diabetes Education Program, and Charlene Sherman, RD, CDE, dietitian, will be present to address questions and concerns related to dealing with diabetes.

The Diabetes Education Program will focus on assisting medical management with education in the key areas of understanding diabetes, treatment care plan, medication, meal planning, exercise and blood glucose monitoring.

Light refreshments will be served and door prizes will be awarded. To reserve a seat for the session call 419-690-8774.
