What to Expect in our Prevent T2 class

Our diabetes prevention program, Prevent T2, is a CDC evidenced-based educational program. The Prevent T2 program is a lifestyle change program, delivered over a 26-week period, designed to help individuals with prediabetes or those at risk of developing type 2 diabetes make healthy choices to reduce their risk of developing the condition. This program aims to educate participants about evidence-based strategies for improving their overall health and preventing the progression to type 2 diabetes. Here are some key components and benefits of the Prevent T2 program:

Education: The program provides participants with education on healthy lifestyle changes. This includes information on nutrition, physical activity, stress management, and other behaviors that can help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Lifestyle Changes: The program encourages participants to incorporate the knowledge they gain into their daily lives. This involves making sustainable changes to their diet and physical activity routines to promote better health.

Family Impact: Healthy lifestyle changes promoted by the Prevent T2 program can have a positive impact on families. When individuals make healthier choices, it often influences the choices and behaviors of their family members, fostering a healthier environment for all.

Behavioral Health: The program emphasizes the importance of early screening for prediabetes and diabetes prevention. By raising awareness and encouraging participants to get screened, it helps identify individuals at risk at an early stage, allowing for interventions before the condition progresses.

Affordable: The program aims to be accessible and affordable, making it available to a wider range of individuals who may benefit from diabetes prevention efforts.

The overall goal of the Prevent T2 program is to empower individuals with the knowledge and tools they need to take control of their health, make informed decisions about their lifestyle, and reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It not only benefits the individuals participating but can also have a positive ripple effect on their families and communities, contributing to better public health outcomes.

 

What Is the Benefit of Being Part of a PreventT2 Program?

As part of a PreventT2 group, you will work with other participants and a trained lifestyle coach to learn the skills you need to make lasting changes. These changes include losing a modest amount of weight, being more physically active, and managing stress.

Being part of a group provides support from other people who are facing similar challenges and trying to make the same changes you are. Together you
can celebrate successes and find ways to overcome obstacles.

 

What Is the Format of the PreventT2 Program?

PreventT2 groups meet for 26 weeks over the course of one year — weekly for the first 16 weeks, then once or twice a month for the for the remainder of the program to maintain healthy lifestyle changes. During each session, your lifestyle coach will teach a lesson and lead a group discussion.

For example, you will learn to:
• Eat healthy
• Add physical activity to your life
• Manage stress
• Stay on track when eating out
• Understand and respond to your food cues
• Stay motivated
• Solve problems that can get in the way of healthy changes

PreventT2 is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
