Dining with Diabetes

Post Rock Extension District

The Post Rock Extension District recently held a 'Dining with Diabetes' program. This program helps individuals learn different strategies to manage their diabetes, whether is it through carbohydrate counting, portion control or meal planning. Those who participate have the opportunity to sample healthy foods made through the concepts that are taught. The community foundation awarded a grant to assist in the cost to hold this program. "With the help of partnerships through K-State Research and Extension, the Lincoln County Health Department and the Post Rock Community Foundation, we gave these individuals the tools they needed to boost their confidence and self-efficacy to better self-manage their diabetes through diet and exercise," said grantee Ashley Svaty.
