Diabetes Prevention Program Testimonials

"A year ago my Primary Healthcare Provider made me aware of the CMH Diabetes Prevention Program based on my pre-diabetic status.  I decided to participate in the program for the sake of my health and to take back control of my life.  I found the program to be very educational and the program leaders to be dedicated to the effort and caring individuals.  There was no judgement, just factual information to allow participants to make informed life changing nutritional health decisions. Through the program I have lost 35 lbs.  I am no longer pre-diabetic and all my vital signs have improved markedly.  I do not feel as though I am dieting - just making smarter food related decisions.  To me this had been a quality life issue. I have not felt this good in years. I now realize how my life and what I could do was limited prior to the program versus what I am able to do now. "
