AUGUSTA — Spectrum Generations, in partnership with Healthy Living for ME, plans soon to offer a free workshop for adults who are at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes or who have pre-diabetes.

The National Diabetes Prevention Program will be offered beginning Thursday, May 25. Workshop participants will meet weekly from 11 a.m. to noon on Zoom.

The program provides health coaching and problem solving to reduce a person’s risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. It includes free coaching during 16 weekly group sessions followed by follow-up meetings every other week and support for the remainder of the year-long program. Participants will learn and apply practical strategies to stay motivated, manage stress, prepare food, solve problems, avoid negative thoughts and prevent relapse.

This series is free and open to the public, but registration is required. For more information and to register, call 800-620-6036 or email [email protected].

Healthy Living for ME is a statewide network of evidence-based programs that empower adults to address and better manage their health issues. All workshops are listed at healthylivingforme.org.
