Prevent T2

Prevent T2 is a CDC-recognized National Diabetes Prevention Program. This year-long program is based on the Diabetes Prevention Program study, which found that losing weight and being moderately active for at least 150 minutes per week cut the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% and reduced the risk of heart disease as well.

In the Prevent T2 Program, you will receive education and resources to help you lose weight and make long-term lifestyle changes to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. This program will teach you how to eat healthy, increase physical activity, manage stress, problem-solve, and stay motivated.
