Join a new Diabetes Prevention Program group starting now at Banner! This nationally-certified DPP is a best-practice program for people who are at high risk for getting type 2 diabetes. Groups run for an hour weekly, with this group on Wednesdays from 5:30 - 6:30 pm. The focus is on weight loss, fitness, stress management, and nutrition, and is conducted in a fun, interactive style.
You may be at high risk if you can answer yes to three or more of these questions: Have elevated blood sugar readings (A1c 5.7-6.4%, Fasting Plasm Glucose 100-125 mg/dL)? Older than 40? Have a close family member who has diabetes? Have high blood pressure? Are not physically active? Are overweight or obese? Have ever been diagnosed with gestational diabetes or prediabetes?
Call Banner Health's Diabetes Prevention and Education Center for more information at (520) 626-1609, or email Chuck at Charles.Palm@bannerhealth.com. This program is free and no insurance or co-pay is required.
