Diabetes Prevention Program

Mar 14th - 9:30 AM
5-5-1 Club - 1415 Almond Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55108

Nearly 35% of U.S. adults have pre-diabetes, including half of adults over 65 years of age. Pre-diabetes is a serious medical condition with an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

Diabetes can be prevented or delayed by making healthy lifestyle changes.  Join us for a free screening on Monday, February 22 and learn about the Diabetes Prevention Class.

Simply follow these two steps:

1)  Attend a FREE information session and screening to see if you qualify for this Diabetes Prevention Program. Screening includes:  diabetes risk assessment, blookd work, body mass index, nutrition consultation, and exercise demonstration.

Why attend this open house? If you have the risk factors of a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol, diabetes during pregnancy, or are overweight and/or inactive, this program may be for you!

Information & Screening Session  |  Monday, February 22
8:30–10:30 AM at the 5-5-1 Club (lower level of the Lyngblomsten campus at 1415 Almond Ave, St. Paul)
