FREE Diabetes Prevention Class
November 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Approximately 88 million American adults—more than 1 in 3—have prediabetes. That is startling. What is more startling? Of those with prediabetes, more than 84% don’t know they have it! The good news is that if someone has prediabetes there is an opportunity to REVERSE it! The National Diabetes Prevention Program helps to inspire people towards making lifestyle changes that prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. The goal of this year-long program, is to help participants lower their risk of type 2 diabetes by losing a small amount (5-7%) of their current weight.
In this program, participants:
- Work closely with trained lifestyle coaches to make realistic lifestyle changes through action planning.
- Learn to eat healthier and add more physical activity into their day.
- Practice managing stress by staying motivated and solving problems that slow progress.
- Get support from people with similar goals and challenges.
Tuesdays starting November 2, 2021 from 6pm – 7pm via Zoom virtual platform.
