The National Diabetes Prevention Program is a community-based, lifestyle change program that offers diabetes prevention education and support for people with pre-diabetes and those at high risk for pre-diabetes. Pre-diabetes involves blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diabetes.

An individual with pre-diabetes can delay or prevent type 2 diabetes by making simple lifestyle changes. Diet and moderate exercise, resulting in a modest weight loss, often work to delay or prevent progression to a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes.

Learn how to create a healthier lifestyle and prevent diabetes in this diabetes prevention program. Participants will meet for a year - weekly for 13 weeks, twice a month for 4 months and then once a month for another 4 months to maintain healthy lifestyle changes. Together participants celebrate their successes and find ways to overcome obstacles.
