One out of three American adults has prediabetes. Community Memorial Hospital’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps people learn how to reduce their risk for developing diabetes. Its one-year community-based program is designed to enable adults to make lifestyle changes that will improve their overall health and reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Groups meet for 26 sessions with trained lifestyle coaches. Classes focus on making small lifestyle changes. Class starts May 9. The cost is $50 or based on a sliding-fee scale per income, but no one is denied participation due to inability to pay.

Community Memorial Hospital will host informational sessions April 17 from 3-4 p.m. and May 2 from 4-5 p.m. For more information, contact Mary Kay Marciniak at 218-878-7661 or
