Partner Up to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes – National Diabetes Prevention Program
April 12, 2021Free
Did you know that 1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes, and most of them do not know it? Find out if you’re at risk, by taking the risk test.
If you have prediabetes or other risk factors for type 2 diabetes, now is the time to take charge of your health and make a change. The PARTNER UP to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes lifestyle change program can help!
Invite your spouse, partner, parent, adult child, or good friend to be your partner and join this new yearlong program with you today. Together, you and your partner will be active participants in the program as you:
• Receive type 2 diabetes prevention education and participate in activities approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
• Learn tips and support for you and your partner to work together for better health
• Participate in classes with a trained lifestyle coach to help you and your partner eat healthier, be more physically active, and manage stress
• Share experiences and get support from others like you and your partner
As a participant in this program, you and your partner will receive:
• A free scale or access to a wheelchair accessible scale if needed
• Other healthy lifestyle supports to aid you through your program, including any needs related to mental and physical disabilities
• A free blood pressure cuff to participate in our free blood pressure self-monitoring program as part of this National DPP class
The next PreventT2 program starts April 12, 2021 and space is limited, so don’t delay—contact us for more information and join today by emailing Deborah.Lehr@meritushealth.com or calling 301-790-8626.
An information session will be held April 7, 2021 at 7:30 p.m.
Participants in this program will enroll with a partner. Your partner does not have to be at risk for type 2 diabetes or have prediabetes to enroll with you if you meet the program criteria.
