Local Grocery Stores Present New Eating Smart with Diabetes Store Tours

Salt Lake City, UT (February 25, 2012) – A new diabetes education and nutrition program is being offer for FREE to interested patients and caregivers at select Associated Food Stores along the Wasatch Front.
These in-store events provide people impacted by diabetes with a unique opportunity to learn how to better manage the disease and how to shop for menu choices to improve health.
Each 90-minute class is led by a specially trained Diabetes Care Pharmacists and a Registered Dietician. The class begins with a pharmacist-led presentation regarding diabetes, proper testing, and medication adherence. The Registered Dietician teaches food options, portion sizes, and nutrition label decoding. The majority of the class is spent walking through the store.
According the Registered Dietician, Harmony Mitchell, “This class is different than your typical diabetes education class because it is interactive. We teach in a hands-on environment. We have the advantage of offering a grocery store shipping experience to reinforce nutrition training.”
Space in each class is limited and requires registration. Interested individuals may contact any of the store listed below for details, or can register for a class online at
