Mon, 05/03/2021 - 4:00pm

LincolnHealth Dietitian Kelly O’Connell will discuss online meal kit delivery services at the next Diabetes Support Group on Thursday, May 13 at 1:15 p.m. in the Diabetes Education Room on the third floor of the hospital on the Miles campus and online via Zoom.

There are many companies that offer various types of programs that deliver either pre-made meals or those that require some preparation at home. O’Connell will discuss what people with diabetes need to watch for when considering a meal kit delivery service.

COVID-19 protocols, including screening when entering the hospital, social distancing and masking will be in place for this class, and space is limited to six individuals. People may also attend via Zoom.

To register for either the in-person or Zoom class, please call 563-4442. You will need to provide your email address to receive the Zoom link. There is no cost to participate.

O’Connell joined LincolnHealth in 2020, after graduating the University of Rhode Island and completing a dietetic internship at Danbury Hospital (Conn.). She currently sees patients who are in the hospital as well as outpatients. O’Connell has worked with patients of all different ages and diagnoses including cancer, diabetes, obesity and eating disorders.
