Join us for the PreventT2 Diabetes Prevention Program and learn how to prevent this chronic health condition.
As part of a PreventT2 group, you will work with a trained lifestyle coach and other participants to learn the skills you need to make lasting changes. You will learn to eat healthy, add physical activity to your life, manage stress, stay motivated, and solve problems that can get in the way of healthy changes.
PreventT2 is a year-long program with weekly meetings for the first 6 months, then meetings once or twice a month for the second 6 months to help you maintain your healthy lifestyle changes. By meeting with others who have pre-diabetes you can celebrate each other’s successes and work together to overcome obstacles.
You will get a FREE A1C test at the beginning and completion of the class.
