Diabetes Prevention Program

The Prevent T2 lifestyle change program is proven to help people with pre-diabetes and/or at risk for type 2 diabetes make achievable and realistic lifestyle changes and cut their risk of type 2 diabetes by 58%. Prevent T2 is a year-long program with trained lifestyle coaches and a support group. The program meets weekly for the first 6 months, then once or twice a month for the second 6 months.
It is my pleasure to congratulate you and Cottage Hospital on earning CDC Full Recognition for your diabetes prevention program. This designation is reserved for programs that have effectively delivered a quality, evidence-based program that meets all of the standards for CDC recognition. The sustained success of your lifestyle change program makes an invaluable contribution to the prevention of type 2 diabetes, both in your community and nationally. We appreciate your participation in the National Diabetes Prevention Program and we are committed to working with you to do everything we can to ensure your continued success as a critical member of our national effort.

Today, 1 in 3 American adults is at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes,
and most of them don’t even know it.

Type 2 diabetes puts people at risk for many serious health problems, including:
• Heart attack
• Stroke
• Blindness
• Kindney failure
• Loss of toes, feet or legs

Fortunately, having prediabetes doesn’t guarantee a person will develop type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented.

A CDC-recognized diabetes prevention lifestyle change program can help people prevent or delay type 2 diabetes and improve their overall health.
