Are you worried about your weight and health?

Prediabetes raises the risk for heart disease and stroke, and many people with prediabetes develop Type 2 diabetes within 2 years.Diabetes Prevention Program

The Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center’s next offering of its year-long National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) begins January 29, 2020.

This year-long group program is designed for anyone with prediabetes and includes education, resources, and support for improving nutrition, physical activity, and weight management. Class topics include meal planning, stress management, positive thinking, goal setting, nutrition, physical activity, cooking and more. NDPP is not a diet program, it is a lifestyle behavior change program designed to set participants up for a lifetime of healthy habits.

Classes will be held Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the CSU Health and Medical Center (151 W. Lake Street). For the first several months, classes will meet weekly. For the remainder of the year, classes will be held biweekly to monthly. There are 26 classes in total.

KRNC’s NDPP recently received full recognition from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which means this program consistently meets criteria that demonstrates that it is highly effective for reversing prediabetes.

Update: Additional classes will be offered Wednesdays from 12-1 p.m., also in the CSU Health and Medical Center.
