The Diabetes Prevention Program is an evidence-based program from the CDC where participants work at losing 5-7% of their starting body weight and being active for 150 minutes each week. The program is a year long and meets once a week for 16 weeks and then once a month for the remaining 8 months. Participants who achieve their goals reduce their risk Diabetes by 58% if under the age of 60, and by 70% if over the age of 60.
We will begin a new Diabetes Prevention Program in Alamance County on Monday, March 5th. The classes will be held at the Alamance County Health Department at noon. For more information please contact Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org
