Don’t let your prediabetes become diabetes! Join our upcoming in-person Diabetes Prevention Program class starting Tuesday, April 18th.

We will also start a virtual group in May.

  • Be 18 years or older.
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or higher (23 or higher if Asian American).
  • Not previously diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
  • Not be pregnant.

Participants will also need to meet 1 of these requirements:

    • Hemoglobin A1C: 5.7%–6.4%
    • Fasting plasma glucose: 100–125 mg/dL

This Diabetes Prevention Program is a 12-month program that meets about 2-3 times a month at the health department for six months and then once a month for the last 6 months to help maintain healthy lifestyle changes. Trained lifestyle coaches lead classes, and the participants support each other. The year-long commitment helps make sure that healthy changes become habits.
