We launch our Program!
We invite you and your church to join other churches in Myrtle Beach area to participate to the PreventT2 Program offered by us, Advanced Nutrition Associates, for free, as a gift for God’s family. Participants will learn how to make healthy changes in their lifestyle and prevent Type 2 Diabetes.
The Program is guided by a CDC trained and certified lifestyle coach and groups of participants are learning the skills they need to make lasting changes such as losing a modest amount of weight, being more physically active, and managing stress.
We know from studies that people with prediabetes — higher-than-normal blood glucose (sugar) levels — are 5 to 15 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those with normal blood glucose levels. In fact, many people with prediabetes can be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes within 5 years.
The PreventT2 program offers a proven approach to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes through simple lifestyle changes made with the support of a coach and one’s peers.
PreventT2 groups meet for a year — weekly for the first 6 months, then once or twice a month for the second 6 months to maintain healthy lifestyle changes. The program’s group setting provides a supportive church environment with people who are facing similar challenges and trying to make the same changes. Together participants celebrate their successes and find ways to overcome obstacles.
PreventT2 is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The local program meets at Surfside Presbyterian Church, on Thursday, 10 AM and 6:30 PM, and it is completely free for the member of your church in the limit of the 30 available seats.
