Diabetes Prevention Program summer session begins June 9

Are you concerned about your weight and health?

Prediabetes raises the risk for heart disease and stroke, and many people with prediabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes within 2 years. If you’re feeling like your healthy-living efforts have been upended from COVID-19 stress, consider getting back-on-track with a lifestyle change program as a way to take care of yourself.

The Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center’s next offering of its National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) begins June 9, 2020.

National Diabetes Prevention Program summer session 2020 beings June 9

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.

In the event that the current situation with COVID-19 persists into the start time of the program, classes will be led virtually until it is safe to meet in-person. Classes will be held Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. 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.
