This program can change that.
In order to address the growing risk of Type 2 (T2) Diabetes in our region, we have launched the EJGH Prevent T2 Program!
PreventT2 is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is proven to help people with prediabetes prevent or delay development of type 2 diabetes.
As part of a PreventT2 group, you will work with other participants and a trained lifestyle coach to learn the skills you need to make lasting changes. These changes include losing a modest amount of weight, being more physically active, and managing stress.
Cynthia Freudenthal and Rose Wadeare both experienced nurses and diabetes counselors who have been specially trained to become lifestyle coaches and help guide you on a path to better health.
Being part of a group provides support from other people who are facing similar challenges and trying to make the same changes you are. Together you can celebrate successes and find ways to overcome obstacles.
