Diabetes Prevention Program: Orientation Class
Feb 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
What is prediabetes?
This means your blood sugar (glucose) level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Nearly 90 percent of adults who have prediabetes don’t know they have it. Those who have prediabetes combined with poor weight management and/or minimal physical activity could develop type 2 diabetes within five years.
This CDC-approved 12 month program is given in 16 weekly sessions, followed by monthly maintenance sessions. Our lifestyle coaches will help you develop healthy eating habits, increase your physical activity, and help keep you motivated to make healthy changes. There will be a $50 non-refundable supply fee, but scholarships are available.
Participating in this program will help you:
Learn the skills you need to lose weight, be more physically active, and manage stress, connect with a lifestyle coach to guide and encourage you, and gain support from other members who have similar goals.
The workshop is hosted by the Sanford Center for Aging and the Division of Endocrinology, Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism.

To be held in the Division of Endocrinology, Center for Molecular Medicine Building, University of Nevada, Reno.
