Before Diabetes (Prediabetes Classes)

COVID-19 UPDATE:

The health and safety of our residents are our highest priorities. With ongoing concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and recommendations from state health authorities to limit gatherings of people, we have made the decision to transition from in-person programming to offering sessions online. Classes will meet virtually until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Once restrictions are lifted, all online sessions will transition back to in-person meetings.

If you have prediabetes or other risk factors for type 2 diabetes, it’s time to take charge of your health. The PreventT2 lifestyle change program can help you make lasting changes to prevent type 2 diabetes.

WHAT IS IT?
