“Change Your Lifestyle, Change Your Life”
A scholarship program brought to you by the Black Women’s Health Imperative and the Indiana Minority Health Coalition.
The Indiana Minority Health Coalition is now offering a FREE evidenced-based lifestyle change program for individuals with prediabetes and/or who are at risk for type 2 diabetes.
This program helps to:
Improve food choices
Increase physical activity to at least 150 minutes per week (30 Minutes a day)
Lose 5%-7% of body weight
These changes will reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% in people at high risk for diabetes.
Participants work with a trained lifestyle coach in a group setting and receive a one year lifestyle change program which included 16 Sessions (usually one per week) and 6 Post Core Sessions (one per month).
It is estimated that more than one in three people and one in two older adults (65 years and older) have prediabetes. The majority of people living with prediabetes do not know they have it.
