MAURY REGIONAL DIABETES EDUCATION GROUP DISCUSSES HOLIDAY EATING

COLUMBIA, Tenn. — The Diabetes Education Group at Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) will host a meeting titled “Diabetes and Holiday Dining” on Tuesday, November 3, in the medical center’s Private Dining Room One at 11:30 a.m. and again at 6:00 p.m. The group, which meets monthly at MRMC, encourages the public to attend this free event.

Jason Mallory, dietitian at Maury Regional Medical Center, will be the guest speaker at the next meeting. Mallory will discuss how to eat healthy during the holidays with­out completely giving up the typical “celebration” foods.

“Food has become a big part of the holiday season. We’ll give you tips on holiday eating so that you and your family can enjoy special foods while still keeping a balanced and healthy diet,” said Shedd.
