Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center’s Wellness U is offering a four-week group “Cooking for Diabetes” class. The free class provides meals and highlights healthy eating habits, blood sugar control, medication use and lifelong diabetes management.

The classes will be held from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. On Thursdays from April 11 to May 2, in the hospital’s second-floor conference rooms, 1000 Rush Dr., Salida.

HRRMC says that this program is designed for people who have been diagnosed with diabetes. One-on-one consultations are available, and family members are welcome.

While the month-long class offered by HRRMC’s Wellness U is free, there is a one-time suggested donation of $25 if a family is able to pay. Those interested in taking the class can register by going to or call 719-530-2057.
