Nearly 1 in 10 Ohioans has been diagnosed with diabetes which, if not managed properly, can increase the risk for serious health problems, from heart disease to eye and foot complications. To address this critical problem, OSU Extension’s Dining with Diabetes teaches ways to manage diabetes through menu-planning, carbohydrate-counting, portion control, label-reading, and healthy recipe taste-testing. Our preliminary evaluations suggest that participants improve diabetes management knowledge and behaviors immediately following the class but regress after three months. Therefore in order to help participants maintain diabetes management, OSU Extension Educators developed three on-line classes that could be administered following the series.
