Pre-Diabetes Lifestyle Change Program at Central Maine Medical Center

Central Maine Medical Center (CMMC) will offer a free Lifestyle Change Program starting December 4 at 11:00 a.m.

The PreventT2 curriculum, approved for the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), features multiple sessions over 12 months covering healthy, long-term changes to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Adults with a prediabetes diagnosis or who are at high risk for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes are welcome to join the program.

Participants meet in a small group led by a specially trained lifestyle coach. The program begins with weekly one-hour meetings for eight weeks. The group then meets bi-weekly for eight sessions and ends with monthly meetings for six months as participants move toward a lifetime of healthy living.
