The Trinity Health Center for Diabetes Education is accepting registrations for Weigh 2 Change, a CDC-approved diabetes prevention program that helps people with prediabetes take control of their health through nutrition, exercise, and support.
Interested persons are encouraged to attend one of two “Session Zero” meetings to learn about Weigh 2 Change and decide whether the yearlong program is right for them. The informational sessions are scheduled September 6 or 13 from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Trinity Health Community Conference Room at Town & Country Center. RSVP is requested by calling the Center at 701-857-5268.
To be eligible for Weigh 2 Change, participants must be 18 years or older, be overweight, and be at risk for – or have – prediabetes. Disqualifying factors include pregnancy and already having a diagnosis of diabetes.
People who decided to commit to the program and are not covered by Medicare will be charged a fee of $220, which covers educational sessions and materials for the entire year. For more information, call the Center for Diabetes Education at 701-857-5268.
