Spectrum Generations, in partnership with Healthy Living for ME, is offering a free remote workshop for adults who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes or who have pre-diabetes. The national diabetes prevention program begins Thursday March 25th. According to a press release from the nationwide network, the workshop participants meet weekly from 3:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Zoom.
The National Diabetes Prevention Program focuses on gradual lifestyle changes and problem solving to reduce a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The program includes free lifestyle coaching during 16 weekly group sessions, followed by follow-up meetings every two weeks and support for the remainder of the year-long program.
Research shows that lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in people with prediabetes by up to 58%. Participants can learn and use practical strategies to stay motivated, deal with stress, prepare food, solve problems, avoid negative thoughts, and avoid relapses.
This series is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
