Cut your diabetes risk by more than half.

People across America are losing weight, exercising more, and managing stress with help from PreventT2. The goal of the program is to help individuals with prediabetes or other risk factors permanently lose 5 to 7 percent of your body weight by eating healthier and being more physically active.This will improve your health and can cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by more than half. PreventT2 is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The program meets for one year with 16 weekly meetings for the first 6 months, then once a month for the second 6 months to help maintain your healthy lifestyle changes. Participants are supported by a lifestyle coach and a group of people trying to make the same changes.

*In an effort to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 in Oklahoma, OU Medicine is taking precautions to keep our community safe. The PreventT2 class on March 26 will be postponed.

New class dates will be announced when scheduled.
