Prevent T2 Diabetes

January 6, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely

One out of three American adults has prediabetes and most of them don’t know it. Prediabetes can lead to Type 2 diabetes. Without making lifestyle changes, many people with prediabetes can develop type 2 diabetes within five years. PeaceHealth’s “Prevent T2 Diabetes” lifestyle change program can help participants make lasting changes to prevent type 2 diabetes. With just modest lifestyle changes, participants can cut the risk of type 2 diabetes by more than half. “Prevent T2 Diabetes” is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Participants will learn to:

  • Eat healthy
  • Add physical activity to lifestyle
  • Manage stress
  • Stay on track when eating out
  • Stay motivated
  • Solve problems that get in the way of healthy habits

Due to COVID-19 safety guidelines, all participants must register; walk-ins will not be accepted. There are also some eligibility requirements and a fee for the class, which varies based on individual insurance coverage. For more information or to register, call Kate at 360-546-8049.
