The Danbury Department of Health and Human Services is launching a 12 month Prevent Type 2 Diabetes Lifestyle Change program. There's an open house tonight at City Hall at 5pm about the program.
The grant funded, evidence-based program is free and open to the public.
It specifically targets individuals who are considered prediabetic or are at risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. In the first 6 months of the program, participants will learn new skills and strategies to allow them to make healthier food choices, deal with stress, incorporate physical activity into their routine, and stay on track with their plan. The second half of the program focuses on maintaining these newly developed habits to foster a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. They will also learn how to solve problems that can get in the way of healthy changes.
Certified coaches will be available throughout each session. The meetings will be on Thursdays from 5PM to 6:30PM at Danbury City Hall.
