What Is The National Diabetes Prevention Program?
The National Diabetes Prevention program is a yearlong evidence-based Lifestyle Change program that is proven to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by at least 58% by increasing physical activity to 150 minutes per week and reduction of body weight by 5-7%.
- Our diabetes prevention program is available in English and Spanish and is free of charge.
- Classes are offered 6 days per week. Our program is offered in all three locations.
- The qualifications for joining the program are either by completing the survey or by having an A1C result of 5.7%-6.4% (prediabetes).
We also offer diabetes education and case management in English and Spanish. Our services include bilingual one on one diabetes wellness and nutrition education sessions and monthly group education classes (in English only) for people with diabetes and pre-diabetes, as well as their family members. These monthly classes are free of charge and are open to the community.
Our Diabetes Program Manager, Marcey Westerbeck, will help participants with their diabetes-related care, including medication management, insulin education, food and meal planning, carbohydrate counting, and diabetes complication management.
