One in three adults has pre-diabetes. Are you the one?? The good news is that you can take steps to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes. The Person County Cooperative Extension Service and Person County Health Department are joining forces to bring you another National Diabetes Prevention Program. The Diabetes Prevention Program can help you change your lifestyle to prevent type 2 diabetes, offers lots of support by Lifestyle Coaches and your classmates, and focuses on weight loss, healthy eating, physical activity, etc.

If you are interested in possibly participating in the next Diabetes Prevention Program, you will want to join us at one of these informational sessions. Being a part of this meeting does not commit you to anything. This program is not for anyone who has already been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. DPP focuses on anyone who might have pre- or borderline diabetes or who may be determined to be at-risk for diabetes (we can give you a simple risk test).

Please join us. We will give you all the details about the program at the information sessions. To register for the DPP Information Sessions, call 336-597-2204 x2277 or register online.
