A lot can happen in one year! Small steps to improve your health can make a huge difference over a year. By increasing your physical activity and focusing on healthy eating, you can lose weight and improve overall wellness and/or help prevent life threatening diseases.

This program can help you:

  • Reduce your body weight by 5 to 7 percent
  • Increase your physical activity to at least 150 minutes per week
  • Learn healthy eating habits
  • Create a healthy support network
  • Decrease your risk for type 2 diabetes

By joining Diabetes Prevention Program: Fit & Healthy 365, you will:

  • Work with a certified lifestyle coach to guide you through the program
  • Gain support and accountability from group involvement
  • Enjoy fun weekly topics to incorporate into your daily living

Participants will meet with both registered dietitians and registered nurses for a minimum of 22 group sessions – beginning with weekly meetings, followed by bi-weekly meetings and monthly sessions- over the course of an entire year!
