NDPP LogoDiabetes Prevention Program

Does diabetes run in your family? Are you physically active and eating healthy? You could be on the path to diabetes, but it's not too late to turn things around. The National Diabetes Prevention Program is available at Neighborhood HealthSource to guide you to a healthier lifestyle. 

Pre-diabetes is a "wake-up call," but you can delay or reduce your risk by making moderate lifestyle changes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that this program helps people cut their risk of developing diabetes by 58%.

Enrollment is open for the February session. Check your risk and see if it's right for you.
