Diabetes Prevention Program
The Diabetes Prevention Program is a FREE 16-week evidence-based lifestyle change program designed to reduce the risk for developing type 2 diabetes. The program is offered by Recreational Sports and underwritten by Healthy IU for faculty/staff at IU-B. Participants work with a lifestyle coach in a supportive group setting where weekly lessons focus on modest behavior changes to improve food choices and increase physical activity.
According to the American Diabetes Association, 35 percent of U.S. adults aged 20 years or older have pre diabetes. The American Diabetes Association offers a one-minute test to see if you are at risk for type 2 diabetes.
Since September 2012, more than 153 IU Bloomington faculty and staff have completed or are currently enrolled in the program and have lost more than 1900 pounds!
