Our Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Program (T2DPP) follows the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines which are proven to reduce individuals’ risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes by 58%. The program is designed to inspire lifestyle changes for people at high risk for Type 2 Diabetes. Over the course of a year, our Lifestyle Coach, Cheri Neiman, helps participants learn skills and support each other to reduce their risk factors by learning to make changes to their eating habits, increase physical activity and reduce stress in their daily lives.
This year-long LIFESTYLE CHANGE PROGRAM will consist of 16 weekly small group sessions, during the first 6 months, followed by 6-8 monthly sessions held during the following 6 months.
Classes will be offered on mornings and evenings beginning January 2017. Fee for the sessions is $345.00, $275.00 for VJCC members. ($10.00 material cost to be paid at registration.)
