A NEW Diabetes Prevention Program being offered at NCH
Weare currently seeking participants for the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program which will be offered at NCH this spring. The program helps adults at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles by increasing physical activity, eating healthier, and losing a modest amount of weight. This offering is for persons who have been diagnosed with prediabetes or meet specific risk criteria for developing the disease.
Participants receive support and encouragement from both a trained lifestyle coach and fellow classmates in a small group classroom setting. Sixteen weekly one-hour sessions are followed by 8 monthly maintenance sessions.
Through collaboration with the Vermont Blueprint for Health, North Country Hospital is pleased to make this evidence-based, one-year program available at no cost to participants.
Please contact the Community Health Office at 334-3290 or 334-3208 for more information or to register.
