MAURY REGIONAL DIABETES EDUCATION GROUP DISCUSSES CELEBRATING THE HOLIDAYS

COLUMBIA, Tenn. — The Diabetes Education Group at Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) will host a meeting titled “Diabetes and Celebrating the Holidays” on Tuesday, November 2, in the medical center’s Private Dining Room One at 11:30 a.m. The group, which meets monthly at MRMC, encourages the public to attend this free event.

Dietitians on the medical center staff will discuss how those with diabetes can eat healthy during the holidays without completely giving up their favorite celebration dishes.

“It can be difficult for people with diabetes during Thanksgiving and Christmas because of all the celebration foods being served,” said Donna Shedd, RN and certified diabetes educator at the medical center. “At the upcoming meeting, our dietitians will discuss ways to keep a focus on good health while enjoying holiday festivities.”
