Diabetes Prevention Program
November is Diabetes Awareness Month
Public Health Solutions is working with community partners throughout the District to reduce the incidence of diabetes by identifying individuals that are pre-diabetic. These individuals can reduce their risk of getting diabetes through participation in the Smart Moves Program. Smart Moves is a lifestyle change program focused on individuals with prediabetes or have risk factors for type 2 diabetes. Classes meet weekly with a trained lifestyle coach in a small group setting. The program teaches you how to make real changes to live healthier by focusing on healthy eating, staying active and problem solving skills. Take the risk test below to see where you fall. Classes are being held at Public Health Solutions and throughout the District. Contact PHS at 402-826-3880 or toll free 1-844-830-0813 for more information.
If your score is 9 or more you are at risk for prediabetes and qualify for the Smart Moves My Life My Health Program.
