Diabetes Prevention Program (FREE!) – Fall 2021


A trained lifestyle coach will guide participants through the course, which is proven to cut the risk of type 2 diabetes in half. Participants’ overall health will be improved by losing weight, eating better, and exercising. The course’s curriculum is approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Prediabetes affects an estimated 84 million Americans, but only 1 in 10 know they have it. You may have prediabetes and be at risk for type 2 diabetes if you:

  • Are overweight
  • Are at least 45 years old
  • Have a parent or sibling who has type 2 diabetes
  • Are physically active fewer than three times a week
  • Ever gave birth to a baby that weighed more than 9 pounds
  • Had gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy)

Classes will be held Wednesdays, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m, starting July 28. The first 16 sessions will be held weekly, followed by 15 bi-monthly sessions. Make-up sessions will be available for participants who can’t make it to the first course session and for any future sessions.
