Support Group Will Host Diabetes Friendly Recipe Exchange

Do you have some great diabetes friendly recipes? Would you like to get more?

Join Humboldt General Hospital’s Diabetes Support Group this Wednesday for a “Diabetes Friendly Recipe Exchange.”

Group participants are invited to bring their favorite recipes to share; they’re also invited to gather recipes from their co-participants and HGH staff.

The group will meet from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, October 7, in the hospital’s Sarah Winnemucca conference room; HGH Wellness Coordinator Billie Lucero will facilitate the evening’s discussion.

Lucero said with the holidays approaching fast, now is a great time to focus on cooking in more healthy, diabetes-friendly ways.

“I think people will be surprised to find that cooking healthy doesn’t take more time or incur most cost,” said Lucero. “It’s simply about making the commitment to keep our blood sugar in check.”

The Diabetes Support Group is open to diabetics, pre-diabetics, caregivers and those who are interested in preventing diabetes; there is no charge to attend.

For more information, please email Lucero at, or call (775) 623-5222, ext. 1297.
