Prevent Type 2 - Diabetes Prevention Program

Fall into a Healthier New You!

If you have prediabetes, you can cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes in half by losing 5 to 7 percent of your body weight. That is about 10 to 14 pounds for a person weighing 200 pounds. Participants are also encouraged to work up to 150 minutes of physical activity per week.

Norton Avenue First Baptist Church is pleased to host the PreventT2 Lifestyle Change Program. Participants work in a group with a trained lifestyle coach to learn the skills needed to lose weight, become more physically active, and manage stress.

PreventT2 is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This program is proven to prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes.

PreventT2 groups meet for a year — weekly for the first 16 weeks, then once or twice a month for the remainder of the year. Having prediabetes means, it’s time for prevention.

  • Eat healthier, lose weight and feel great all while having the support of a group of friends and many laughs.
