A Diabetes Peer Support Group for Machias Area (Fri. 19 Jan, 2018 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm)

Input Sought for New Diabetes Support Group Planned for Machias

Machias, Healthy Acadia is seeking input and guidance from Machias area residents who are affected by prediabetes or diabetes (type 1 or type 2) and may be interested in participating in an in-person peer support group. The group will offer a casual setting for individuals living with prediabetes, type 1 or type 2 diabetes, their family members and/or caregivers to connect and share their day-to-day challenges and experiences with living with this chronic health condition.

Living with a chronic condition such as diabetes or prediabetes presents daily challenges that at times can be difficult to navigate.  Support groups provide an opportunity to connect with others in your community who understand what you are going through and may experience many of these same challenges. Together you can explore new resources and directions to help you manage your health, make meaningful connections, receive needed encouragement and inspire others.

The direction, meeting frequency and focus area(s) of the peer support group will be guided by input and comments received from community members.

Interested community members are invited and encouraged to offer input regarding their individual support needs by completing a short survey, which can be found online at: https://goo.gl/forms/2xSQRG9E56Ebc0123. Deadline to submit comments is January 19, 2018.

For more information please email Angela Fochesato at [email protected] or call 207-255-3741, ext. 103.

Cooking with Sea Veggies at Penobscot Marine Museum (Sat. 20 Jan, 2018 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

Cooking with Sea Veggies

At Penobscot Marine Museum

(Searsport, Maine) Penobscot Marine Museum presents Cooking with Sea Veggies with Micah Woodcock of Atlantic Holdfast Seaweed Company on Saturday, January 20, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. Attendees will explore the culinary possibilities of Maine’s native sea vegetables and will prepare several dishes using local seaweed. The program is free and open to the public. This free presentation will take place on the Penobscot Marine Museum campus.

Cooking with Sea Veggies continues the conversation begun last summer at Maine Marine Fare about what we take from and eat from the sea off the Maine coast. Woodcock will work with participants to distinguish different seaweed and to learn the uses of each as well as how the seaweeds are harvested, and their culinary, ecological, and economic importance.

Micah Woodcock is the owner/operator of Atlantic Holdfast Seaweed Company, a small business working to sustainably hand-harvest sea vegetables in Penobscot Bay since 2010. Woodcock’s harvesting operation is based on a remote island 7 miles off of Stonington, where the strong currents, active surf, and full exposure to the force of the open ocean have allowed these seaweeds to thrive for millennia.

For more information or to reserve your space, please call Penobscot Marine Museum at 207-548-2529.
