We also have FREE diabetes prevention classes for individuals who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or are at risk of developing pre-diabetes. They are held once a week for twelve weeks and are focused on active lifestyle changes in order to prevent and/or delay the onset of Type 2 Diabetes. A trained Health Educator teaches individuals to identify changes they can make in their personal diet and activity level that will result in a healthier weight, more nutritious diet, and increased level of regular physical activity.
