Free classes for May to address ‘healthy eating and diabetes’

The Pinal County Public Health District will sponsor a free diabetes class at the San Tan Valley Public Health Clinic.  The topic this May is “Healthy Eating and Diabetes.”

The class will take place 3-5 p.m. Wednesday, May 11. The clinic is at 36235 N. Gantzel Road, between Poston Butte High School and Banner Ironwood Hospital.

Since diabetes is largely self-managed and about 99 percent of the care comes from the patients and his or her family, it is an important skill to know what and how much to cook and eat, according to a press release.

These classes will offer up-to-date, practical “how-to” information and skill-building on monitoring, healthy eating, being active, problem solving, medications and reducing risks.
The class will be taught by Sheri Steincamp, MS, RDN, CDE, CHWC. She will cover topics such as carbohydrate-counting and meal-planning.
People may reserve a spot by calling Rosanna at 520-866-7313 or they may just show up at the class. Walk-ins will be accepted.
