As part of the Second Harvest webinar series, Managing Diabetes for Older Adults will provide important and practical information and suggestions. Learn more and register today for the (free!) e-learning course.

Managing Diabetes for Older Adults

Led by Second Harvest’s own registered dietitian Krish Thayalan, this webinar will provide important information about diabetes in older adults, including how to manage diabetes using food, and how to overcome the challenges of managing this condition – including busting some of the myths about the role of sugar and carbs. By the end of this free webinar you will understand the relationship between food and blood sugar levels; learn which types of foods can increase vs. manage blood sugar levels; and get ideas for diabetes-friendly meals suitable for all budgets.

Pro tip: This webinar will be useful to non-profits serving seniors, PSWs and caregivers, as well as family members who want to support a loved one with diabetes.
