Free Lifestyle Management Online Classes

Individuals across West Virginia are invited to participate in preventing type 2 diabetes with the PreventT2 lifestyle change program offered by Active Southern West Virginia. Guided by trained lifestyle coaches, groups of participants learn the skills they need to make lasting changes such as losing a modest amount of weight, being more physically active, and managing stress.

PreventT2 is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is proven to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. Research shows that modest behavior changes, such as making better food choices and increasing physical activity, reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent in people at high risk for developing this disease.
