WSU Extension offers diabetes prevention program

Published:

 

The Washington State University Clark County Extension is offering a 16-week program for people who have pre-diabetes or who are at risk for diabetes.

The program, “Road to Health: Diabetes Prevention Program,” empowers people to lower their risk for Type 2 diabetes by losing modest amounts of weight by decreasing fat and calorie intake and participating regularly in physical activity.

An extension trained lifestyle coach will lead the group program. Following the 16-week series, monthly sessions will be held to help participants maintain their lifestyle changes.

The program will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. Wednesdays, beginning April 3, at Heritage Farm, 1919 N.E. 78th St. The program cost is $100, which includes a participant notebook and materials. Flexible spending accounts can be used to pay the fee.

For more information, call Jeana Gannon-Gonzales at 360-397-6060 ext. 5718 or Sandra Brown at ext. 5700.
