“Live Healthy” Community Outreach Programs

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease. People with diabetes must learn self-management skills and make lifestyle changes to effectively manage their disease and avoid or delay the complications associated with it.

Take advantage of our free diabetes educational seminars or to learn more about Metro Health’s Diabetes Education.

Metro Health’s Executive Chef, Ryan Reynolds, teamed up with Diabetes Educator, Carol VanRhee for a fun and delicious evening focusing on summertime cooking for diabetics. Check out the photos and recipes from this event.
