What is the Prevent Type 2 Lifestyle Change Program?
Prevent T2 is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is proven to help people with prediabetes prevent or delay development of type 2 diabetes.
What are the Benefits of Being Part of a Prevent T2 Program?
Working with a trained lifestyle coach to facilitate learning the skills you need to make lasting changes.
You'll implement lifestyle changes that will naturally bring about a modest amount of weight loss, support your being more physically active, help you manage stress and increase your well-being.
Does Prevent T2 Work?
The Prevent T2 program can help people with prediabetes cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes in half. Research conducted by the CDC showed that making modest behavior changes helped participants lose 5 to 7 percent of their body weight — that is 10 to 14 pounds for a person weighing 200 pounds.
These lifestyle changes reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent in people with prediabetes.
What Is the Format of the Prevent T2 Program?
Your Prevent T2 group meets once a week by TeleClass — weekly for the first 6 months, then once or twice a month for the second 6 months to maintain healthy lifestyle changes.
Each session will include a lesson, activities, a group discussion and action steps
Sample Session Topics from the first six months:
Eat Well to Prevent T2
Shop and Cook to Prevent T2
Cope with Triggers
Get Active to Prevent T2
Eat Well Away From Home
Workbooks are provided as well as recordings of each TeleClass. So no worries if you miss a session.

"All you need to do is give this program a try!"
When a friend mentioned this lifestyle change program to me, it piqued my interest. I had wanted to change my eating and exercise habits for some time, and I jumped at the opportunity to get started. I enjoy hearing different ideas and perspectives from others in the program and am motivated by the enthusiasm I see each week. Now, I am working on a daily routine that involves eating healthy and exercising.

"I love having a lifestyle coach. She has given us great information, helped me stay on track and stay positive!"
When my glucose levels and blood pressure started to increase, I knew I had to do something to reduce my risk of developing type 2 diabetes. When I mentioned my concerns to a friend, she told me about this lifestyle change program. I love the support and encouragement I get from the other program participants and the lifestyle coach. I enjoy making lifestyle changes such as cutting back on red meat and sugary drinks. I now keep my bike at work and take lunch-break rides around town to stay active!
