Memorial Presbyterian Church in collaborations MidMichigan Health and Michigan Health Improvement Alliance, is offering the National Diabetes Prevention Program to individuals who are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
Risk factors for type 2 diabetes include pre-diabetes, borderline diabetes, high blood sugar or glucose or gestational diabetes. The National Diabetes Prevention Program, an evidence-based program developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has been proven to significantly reduce these risk factors by encouraging participants to make healthy lifestyle choices. Those who take part in the program will learn the skills they need to lose weight, become more physically active and manage stress with the help of a trained lifestyle coach and support from fellow participants.

• Are at risk for developing diabetes?
• Have pre-diabetes?
• Have borderline diabetes?
• Have high blood sugar or glucose?
• Had gestational diabetes?
You may be at risk for developing type 2 diabetes but there is something you can do about it.
