You don’t have to be the one in three.
Essentia Health, in International Falls, will be holding two community information meetings regarding a diabetes prevention program.
About the program
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers scientifically proven and effective lifestyle change programs that can help you prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
The program can show you how to make better food choices, be more physically active, and find helpful ways to cope with problems and stress.
Participants work with a trained lifestyle coach and a small group of people who are all working towards the same goal.
It’ll last for 1 year (including meetings about once per week in the first 6 months).
