This will improve your health and cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The skills you learn will help you better manage your weight and empower you to make a change for life.

DURATION -- The program meets for one year with 16 weekly meetings for the first 6 months, then once a month for the second 6 months to help maintain your healthy lifestyle changes.

To enroll in PreventT2, you must a) have a BMI of 25 or higher and b) have prediabetes. Prediabetes is defined as an A1C level between 5.7 and 6.4 percent or a fasting blood sugar level from 100 to 125 mg/dL (110 to 125 mg/dL for Medicare recipients). | Calculate your BMI now

A documented A1C or fasting glucose from your physician’s office is required for Medicare recipients. All other insurance plans do not require documentation.

The value of the PreventT2 program is estimated at $500. HHDC is able to offer the program at a discount, because of substantial support from our donors.
