Our Diabetes Prevention Program

Type 2 diabetes has become a global pandemic. In North America, type 2 diabetes ranks among the leading causes of death. Type 2 diabetics pay on average, and additional $14,000 per year in medical expenses; that's 2.3 times more than the average American.

 

We believe that type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and most other chronic diseases, also known as lifestyle diseases, are preventable and largely reversible. In our Diabetes Prevention Program, a trained lifestyle coach will introduce topics in a supportive setting over a digital platform, and encourage participants as they explore how healthy eating, physical activity, and behavior changes can benefit their health.
