National Diabetes Prevention Program

The National Diabetes Prevention Program is a proven program that can help you prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.

One in three Americans have prediabetes.  Without weight loss or moderate physical activity, many people can develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years.

“So many people in our community have prediabetes and diabetes,” said Vince Keane, CEO & President of Unity Health Care.  “The Diabetes Prevention Program offers a real chance to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes by helping people lose weight and get healthier.”

The program meets once a week for 6 months, then once or twice a month for the next 6 months.  You will learn about healthy eating, physical activity, managing stress and more!  In addition, meet and find support from others in the community who are also working to prevent diabetes.

There are three ways you can find out if you are eligible to participate in the Diabetes Prevention Program -
