Due to popular demand, the U-M Diabetes Prevention Program has added another session starting in February!

In this one-year program, a registered dietitian and diabetes expert will help you:

  • Learn how to balance meals to help manage your blood sugar and other metabolic conditions
  • Increase your physical activity weekly
  • Learn how to lose weight in a healthy way
  • Manage stress
  • Overcome challenges such as time constraints, holidays, dining out, lapses and relapses
  • Maintain motivation
  • Develop the tools to not only make change, but maintain changes for the long term
  • Prevent or delay type 2 diabetes

There is no better time than now to make your health a priority! Classes begin Monday, Feb. 6.

The classes will be held at Domino’s Farms, 24 Frank Lloyd Wright Dr., in Ann Arbor.
