University of Illinois Extension Offering Diabetes Prevention Online Course

Look out for information on a diabetes online class through the University of Illinois Extension.


Health and Wellness Expert Caitlin Mellendorf says this will be somewhat of a follow-up class they had for pre-diabetes. She says it will coincide with November being Diabetes Prevention Month.



The course, titled "Eating to Reduce the Risk of Diabetes", aims to provide a refresher surrounding the food and nutrition of diabetes care and management. Mellendorf feels it can also be informative for those close to someone who may be battling diabetes.



Mellendorf says the course will address things like carbs and diabetes, meal planning, and how to apply information daily.


The course is available now and will be available through the end of December. Get more information by visiting go.illinois.ed/diabetesclass.
