Please join us for the second round of the Navigating Diabetes Through Food and Community series. We have added a new session: Understanding Nutrition Labels! This is a two-week program series with session held online and in-person at the Roxbury Branch of the Boston Public Library or the Grove Hall Stop & Shop.
Patrons are invited to join one or many sessions where they will learn from professionals who value scientific research and the important role community plays when treating diabetes. Sessions will cover a range of topics including community building, healthy cooking demonstrations, Qi Gong movement, and more. According to the CDC, 37.3 million Americans, 11.3% of the population, have diabetes, and 96 million Americans over the age of 18 are living with prediabetes. Whether patrons have been diagnosed with diabetes, prediabetes, or live with someone with these diagnoses, all are welcome. Registration is required for each session.
This program series is accessible to people with disabilities. To request a disability accommodation and/or language services, please contact Stephanie Chace via [email protected] by 8/28/2023. Please allow at least two weeks to arrange for accommodations.
In this session, Nutritionist Christine Sinclair, MA, MS, RD, LDN will lead a diabetic-food friendly cooking demonstration.
