Our Diabetes Prevention Program begins January 31, 2018. It is a lifestyle change program.
Participants at high risk for type 2 diabetes meet in groups with a trained Lifestyle Coach for 16 weeks and 6 monthly follow-up sessions to learn ways to incorporate healthier eating and moderate physical activity into their daily lives.
Participants work with the Lifestyle Coach and the group to identify and overcome barriers to making sustainable lifestyle changes.
In order to qualify for the program, participants must:
Be at least 18 years old
Be overweight (BMI 24 or >)
Have established risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes
Or have been diagnosed with prediabetes within the past year or gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) while pregnant.
This is a partnership with Wilson County Health Department and is funded by Healthcare Foundation of Wilson. For more information, contact Kathie Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
