MVH to Hold Diabetes Prevention Classes

Monongahela Valley Hospital is hosting PreventT2, a diabetes prevention program, beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 29.

The free program can provide the motivation many need to make lifestyle changes to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. PreventT2 is a year-long program with trained lifestyle coaches and a support group. The program meets weekly for the first six months, then once a month for the second six months.

"One in three American adults has prediabetes, so the need for prevention has never been greater," said Karen Pritts, director, Clinical Nutrition and Diabetes. "The PreventT2 program offers a proven approach to preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes through modest lifestyle changes made with the support of an MVH clinician and one's peers."
