For the July 11th Diabetic Support Group, Magruder Hospital Dietitian Kathy Buckingham will lead a Supermarket Tour at Kroger in Port Clinton from 9-10 a.m. This is open to anyone with diabetes, as well as family, friends and caregivers, to be able to see first-hand what to look for and what to keep in mind when grocery shopping.
Because this will be a hands-on tour, group size will be limited, so RSVP by Monday, July 8, to 419-734-3131 ext. 3544. The support group has a new facilitator, Port Clinton resident Stacy Kleinhans, and she will also be attending the tour. Stacy was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes at the age of 17, and has had an insulin pump for the last 8 years. From all her experiences, she has a wealth of knowledge and understanding on the topic of diabetes.
The Supermarket Tour is an opportunity to meet the new Facilitator and have a Registered Dietitian at your side as you go through the aisles to explain labels, ingredients and nutrition facts and really learn what it all means.
