About this event

More about the lifestyle change program

This 12-month program uses a research-based curriculum proven to make an impact. Ready to cut your diabetes risk in half? Trained coaches will guide you with evidence-based information on weight-loss, healthy eating, physical activity, and other important topics so you can achieve your health goals. Sessions are interactive allowing sharing, learning and a supportive atmosphere for making changes a reality.

What to expect

The program sessions are held weekly for the first 16-weeks, every-other-week for about 3 months, then monthly for the remaining 5 months. Make-up sessions will be made available when needed.

The program is an in-person program but during the COVID19 emergency we will only be offering this program virtually using Zoom. Zoom link and password will be provided after registration is complete.
