Sister Marilyn Schwab Memorial Lecture

You are what you eat: using food (and lifestyle) choices to prevent and manage diabetes

Diabetes affects one in three adults. Pre-diabetes affects many more. Whether you have diabetes or pre-diabetes, the key to better health is in your hands. The many small choices you make each day about what you eat, how much you move and how you cope with stress impact your health and vitality. When it comes to preventing and managing diabetes, you have much more control over your health than your doctor does.

Join us for an engaging and informative evening to learn how to prevent and manage diabetes. Kathy Schwab, niece of Sr. Marilyn Schwab, is a registered dietitian with a master’s degree in public health education and health promotion. Kathy is the Oregon Region Manager for the Providence Health & Services Diabetes Education Program.

Kathy is an engaging and dynamic speaker, focusing on practical, easy ways to eat better, feel better, and live better.

The lecture is free and open to all. To RSVP or for more information on the Sr. Marilyn Schwab Memorial Lecture or directions to Queen of Angels Monastery, please call 503-845-6773, or email us.
