Could a Lifestyle Change Program Benefit You?

Let’s lower your risk of type 2 diabetes together!

If you currently have prediabetes or scored 5 points or higher on the CDC risk assessment, you are at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can result in many other health problems, including kidney and heart disease. We are excited to invite you to enroll in a program called PreventT2, a program that gives you the tools you need to be successful in changing the course of your health.

This program is being offered throughout Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester Counties at little to no cost to you! The PreventT2 lifestyle change program is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This proven program can help you make modest lifestyle changes and cut your risk of type 2 diabetes by more than half.

With the PreventT2 Program you get:

  • A CDC-approved curriculum.
  • The skills you need to lose weight, be more physically active, and manage stress.
  • Cooking demonstrations and incentives including cookbooks, exercise equipment, and more.
  • A trained lifestyle coach to guide and encourage you.
  • Support from other participants with the same goals as you.
  • A year-long program with weekly meetings for the first 6 months, then once or twice a month for the second 6 months.

Joining is a great way to improve your health!
