LEEDS — The DFD Russell Medical Center office will offer a free Lifestyle Change Program starting at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 10, with an information session.

The PreventT2 curriculum, approved for the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), features multiple sessions over 12 months covering healthy, long-term changes to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Adults with a prediabetes diagnosis or who are at high risk for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes are welcome to join the program.

Participants will meet in a small group led by a specially trained lifestyle coach. The program will begin with weekly one-hour meetings for eight weeks. The group then will meet bi-weekly for eight sessions and end with monthly meetings for six months as participants move toward a lifetime of healthy living.

Space is limited. The center is located at 180 Church Hill Road.
