In 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that 34.2 million Americans are living with diabetes. In Kansas, 9.4% of the adult population have been diagnosed with diabetes. K-State Research and Extension offers “Dining with Diabetes” – a program designed for pre-diabetics, people with type 2 diabetes and their caregivers. In November, they are offering a four-week Dining with Diabetes E-mail Challenge. Gayle Price, program director for Kansas State University’s Dining with Diabetes program, and an Extension specialist at the Southeast Kansas Research-Extension Center in Parsons and Sara Sawer, the Dining with Diabetes lead trainer and a family and consumer sciences agent in Sedgwick County, discuss what’s covered in the challenge and how participants will benefit from the program.
