Diabetes Prevention Program

Nearly 1 in 4 American adults lives with diabetes.

Diabetes is a growing health problem in Georgia, being the seventh leading cause of death.  About 1 in every 3 adults living in Georgia is obese, which is a risk factor for diabetes.  Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to health issues such as heart attack and stroke.

Each of our classes is led by a certified Lifestyle Coach on our staff.  Lifestyle changes don’t happen in a few weeks.  That’s the reason the online class takes one year, so you have enough time and support to make sure you can keep the changes you make.  Our next class will begin Spring 2022.
