Aurora Diabetes Support Group to Discuss Reading Food Labels

Thursday, September 04, 2008

Marinette, Wis. - Aurora Health Center will host its monthly Diabetes Support Group meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 16. At the event, attendees will learn how to read food labels on packaged products.

Nola Hardy, a registered dietitian with Aurora Health Care, will host the Diabetes Support Group meeting. The discussion will include an explanation of the percentages on food labels, how to count carbohydrates using a food label and a comparison of sugar-free and fat-free products to the original product. After the session, attendees will have a good understanding of what is important on a food label and what is not important.

Presentations take place from 6 to 7 p.m. and are held in the conference room at Aurora Health Center at 4061 Old Peshtigo Road in Marinette.
