diabetes-prevention-program79 million Americans are estimated to have prediabetes, which means they have a high risk of developing diabetes.

Preventing diabetes doesn’t require major lifestyle changes. Once you understand the risk factors, get yourself tested, and begin to eat healthier and get active, you can be well on your way.

Listen to a recent interview with Laura on KSVR (Skagit Talks) to learn more about diabetes prevention!

Are You at Risk?

If you think you or someone you know may be at risk for type 2 diabetes, then join the lifestyle change program to prevent type 2 diabetes. The National Diabetes Prevention Program – Group Lifestyle Balance series program can help you lower your risk for type 2 diabetes with gradual, modest lifestyle changes. The program includes year-long support and motivation beginning with 12 weekly class meetings, bi-weekly for the next four sessions and then monthly meetings for the last six sessions.

New Classes start soon
