XENIA — OSU Extension Greene County is set to host “Dining with Diabetes,” a three-session class to help locals diagnosed with diabetes.

The class will be held from 6-8 p.m. Aug. 10, 17 and 24, at the OSU Extension Greene County offices, 100 Fairground Road. Melanie Hart, Family and Consumer Educator, and Tonya Lively, a registered dietitian from the Greene County Combined Health District, will lead the sessions.

The program is $35 per person, but seating is limited, so participants are asked to sign up by Aug. 5 by calling 937-372-9971 ext. 112 or ext. 116, or by emailing [email protected] or [email protected].
