Diabetes Prevention Program

The CDC estimates about 10% of the US population has diabetes and 1 out of 3 American adults are pre-diabetic.  Pre-diabetes is when your blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as type-2 diabetes.  The National Diabetes Prevention Program is for individuals who are pre-diabetic and want to make lifestyle changes to prevent diabetes.  The program is one year long, the first 16 weeks participants meet once a week for one hour, and then only once a month for the rest of the year.  Classes will be held at the Monmouth Senior Center starting Sept 10 and will occur every Thursday at 4p.  To learn more or to sign up, call the Monmouth Senior Center at 503-838-5678.
