Reduce Your Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

If you have prediabetes or other risk factors for type 2 diabetes, now is the time to take charge of your health and make a change. The Annie Jeffery Diabetes Prevention Program can help! 

Annie Jeffrey is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program led by the Centers for Disease 

Control and Prevention (CDC). It features an approach that is proven to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes and includes:

  • Trained lifestyle coach 
  • CDC-approved curriculum 
  • Group support 
  • 16 weekly meetings 
  • 6 monthly follow-up meetings 

By improving food choices and increasing physical activity, you can lose 5 to 7 percent of your body weight — that is 10 to 14 pounds for a person weighing 200 pounds. If you have prediabetes, these lifestyle changes can cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by more than half.
