Diabetes Dayton is dedicated to the assistance and support of individuals affected by diabetes.
We are a local, independent diabetes agency serving the Dayton area. We are not affiliated with other agencies like the American Diabetes Association (ADA) or the Juvenile Research Foundation (JDRF).
Until there’s a cure, we help you live.

Healthy Cooking Classes
We are now hosting our new healthy cooking classes in our brand new kitchen! Every 4th Saturday we'll be cookin' in the kitchen with diet tech certified Chef Erin. Each of our cooking classes will be themed. This class is for anyone looking to make positive dietary change, not just for diabetics. Our first classes will be "Healthy Cooking for the Holidays." These classes will have a nominal fee, of $20 (if pre-registered) or $25 at the door. Costs will cover cooking demonstrations, a full meal, recipes, and substitution ideas for everyday cooking. Classes will be held right here at Diabetes Dayton from11AM-2PM. Grab a friend! Instead of meeting for lunch, learn how to cook while Chef Erin creates your lunch.
