Baptist Health Community Outreach to Offer Virtual National Diabetes Prevention Program Classes

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Starting in September, Baptist Health Community Outreach will offer a free virtual program to help those with prediabetes and other risk factors for type 2 diabetes improve their health.

The program, which meets for 16 weekly sessions and six monthly follow-up sessions, will host its first online class on Monday, Sept. 14, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Classes can be joined virtually on Google Meet or by phone.

The National Diabetes Prevention Program is an evidence-based program that provides a supportive environment where participants work together as a group to learn about healthier eating and increase physical activity in order to reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Baptist Health Community Outreach uses the PreventT2 curriculum on preventing or delaying type 2 diabetes developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
