The Diabetes Matters program will focus on healthy recommendations for
foods across cultures. Our experience with food can be rooted in community
and culture. Food is used as daily nourishment and for special celebrations
such as sporting events, religious occasions or national holidays. Navigating
the choices can be complicated and confusing. These presentations will
explore modifying traditional recipes to make them healthier without losing
their distinctive flavors. Join us for one, two, or all three presentations.
When: First Thursday of every other month, 7-8 p.m.:
August 2, Indian Asian
October 4, Filipino
December 6, Latino
