The Diabetes Prevention Program is a community-based, lifestyle change program that offers diabetes prevention education and support for people with prediabetes and those at high risk for prediabetes. Prediabetes involves blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diabetes.
An individual with prediabetes can delay or prevent type 2 (T2) 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.
You will learn how to create a healthier lifestyle and prevent diabetes in this 12-month diabetes prevention program. Your group will meet with a trained Diabetes Prevention Program facilitator.
Meet & Greet dates (Held at the Superior Public Library)
Meet and greets are FREE and open to the community. Community members will get an overview of the program, complete the survey to qualify for the Diabetes Prevention Program, and discuss meeting dates and times for the program.
Classes for the Diabetes Prevention Program
Classes will begin the week of October 2nd meeting at the Superior Public Library and will run weekly for an entire year. Class participants will choose the day and time that works best for them and attend during that day and time for the year. Diabetes Prevention Program is FREE, but YMCA membership is no longer included must sign up seperately.
