The survey questions will also help you determine if you are at risk for Type 2 Diabetes. You do not have to be diagnosed as prediabetic to take this course.

Note: Your responses are stored in a HIPAA compliant software and are kept confidential in partnership with WVU Office of Health Services Research. 

Did you know that 1 in 3 adults in the United States has prediabetes but more than 80% don’t know they have it? Take the survey below to see if you may be at risk. The good news is prediabetes can be reversed. Knowing if you’re at risk can be your next step to better self-care!

All I had to do was start by joining online and the benefits were quick and easy to realize.

Who should participate?

Diabetes Prevention Courses powered by Active SWV are free and open to residents of the communities we serve. While you do not have to be diagnosed with pre-diabetes to participate, priority may be given to those who are. Spaces may be limited. Be sure to join our Prevent T2 mailing list by taking the risk survey above to hear when new classes open!

The Diabetes Prevention Course gives you 1 year of free lifestyle change coaching specific to prediabetes and type 2 diabetes prevention management. Over the course, you’ll receive benefits including:

Most importantly, this program is designed to help you make lasting changes by empowering you with tools and strategies you may carry with you for a lifetime.

Get Motivated and Stay Accountable

When you join a Diabetes Prevention Course, you join a supportive welcoming group to share your wellness journey. 

Save Money

Medical bills of people with diabetes are typically 2-3 times higher than those without (American Diabetes Association, 2014). But prediabetes may be reversed. Prevent T2 helps you make small but significant lifestyle changes to prevent or prolong the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Prevent Other Chronic Disease

Diabetes is a major contributor to death from heart disease and stroke. Instilling healthy habits can help prevent chronic disease and other common consequences of diabetes.

participant resources

These resources are for individuals already enrolled in a Prevent T2 class powered by Active SWV.

Diabetes Prevention Course – PreventT2 Lifestyle Change is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This class 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% in people at high risk for developing this disease.

Active SWV offers regular Prevent T2 classes to the communities we serve at no cost through both our Community Captains and Workplace Wellness programs.
This course can be offered virtually, in-person or blended as safety allows.
