Vancouver, WA – People with prediabetes or who are at risk for diabetes can sign up for a 16-week lifestyle change program that supports making changes to reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes.

Road to Health: Diabetes Prevention Program will be 6-7 p.m. Tuesdays, beginning June 10. It will be held at the 78th Street Heritage Farm, 1919 N.E. 78th St.

The fee varies based on insurance coverage, income, use of flexible spending accounts and scholarships.

Coaches will work with participants to meet their goals and overcome roadblocks. Session topics will range from tipping the calorie balance to healthy eating out and staying motivated. The program includes 16 weekly lifestyle sessions, eight maintenance weigh-ins, problem solving and group support.

A person’s risk for diabetes includes a family history of the disease, a history of gestational diabetes and being over 45, overweight and inactive. To know your risk score, take the quiz at http://clark.wsu.edu/.

For more information on the prevention program, contact Sandra Brown, WSU Clark County Extension, (360) 397-6060 ext. 5700, browns@wsu.edu
