Diabetes Prevention Program: Prevent T2 Diabetes
July 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
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.
