Navigating Healthy Eating with Diabetes through the Holidays

For many, Thanksgiving is an all-day feast of splurging on a variety of dishes and desserts. For those with diabetes, this may pose many threats and challenges.

North Oaks Dietetic Intern Miriam Lopez will discuss preparing healthy recipe options during the holidays at a free seminar at 4 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 9. This discussion may be beneficial for those with diabetes, and people who are interested in preparing diabetes-friendly meals.

Seating is limited and registration is required. Reserve your seat here or by calling (985) 243-9106.

North Oaks Diabetes Education meetings are held at the North Oaks Diagnostic Center, located at 15837 Paul Vega, M.D., Drive in Hammond. COVID-19 safety measures applicable to health care settings will apply during the meeting as set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and State of Louisiana.

North Oaks Diabetes Education offers group meetings on a monthly basis. Subject matter experts are invited to discuss insights on current health topics related to diabetes to help participants live their healthiest lives. Time also is set aside during each meeting for participants to ask questions and share experiences, tips, ideas and concerns with diabetes experts and each other.

The American Diabetes Association recognizes North Oaks Diabetes Education as meeting the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education.
