St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea to host free
National Diabetes Prevention Program Beginning in March

Informational session scheduled for March 21

CHELSEA, Mich. (March 4, 2019) — St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea will host the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) beginning March 28. The NDPP will meet regularly on Thursdays from 4 to 5 p.m., for 16 weeks, in the Dexter Wellness Center, located at 2810 Baker Road in Dexter.

NDPP helps those at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating right, increasing physical activity and losing a modest amount of weight. In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach facilitates a small group of participants in learning about behavior changes. Topics include healthier eating, getting started with physical activity, overcoming stress, staying motivated and more. The group helps to motivate and encourage each other.

This program is free, but registration is required. For more information or to register, please call 734-593-5276.

For people not sure if a Diabetes Prevention Program is right for them, they are invited to attend a free informational session at the Dexter Wellness Center on March 21, from 4 to 5 p.m.
