Becoming more active and losing a moderate amount of weight can help you change your risk of diabetes. The Diabetes Prevention Program will help you take steps to prevent type 2 diabetes.
Having a parent or sibling with type 2 diabetes increases your risk for also having diabetes. If you think you’re at risk or have been told by a doctor that you have prediabetes, consider joining the Diabetes Prevention Center’s Diabetes Prevention Program at Palmer Park!
Participants will be a part of a small, supportive group led by a trained lifestyle coach. You’ll learn about healthier eating habits, ways to be more physically active and other behavior changes over the course of 16 weekly one-hour sessions. The group will continue meeting monthly, completing a full year of the Diabetes Prevention Program.
This program will be offered at no cost to participants, but we are requesting participation in a research study. Attend the information session to learn more.
To learn more about this life-changing program, attend the information session on Wednesday, July 10, from 10-11 a.m. at Palmer Park Community House.
The first session of the workshop begins Wednesday, July 17, at the same time and location.
