This is an evidence-based program to reach people at the highest risk of type 2 diabetes.
It is designed to reduce their chances of developing diabetes through modest weight loss and increase of physical activity. The year-long program consists of 16 weekly facilitated “core” group sessions followed by eight monthly “post-core” booster sessions.
These sessions are in-person, facilitated by two of AAHC trained Lifestyle Coaches and topics include: the importance of fat and calorie tracking and reduction, healthy eating, being active as a way of life, taking charge, problem-solving, combating negative thoughts, managing stress, staying motivated, and preventing relapse and maintenance of a diabetes-free lifestyle.
This program will be available free of charge.
