Marshfield Clinic will offer a diabetes prevention program called “Prevent T2,” approved by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). During the sessions, Clinic Health Educators teach the skills necessary to reach a healthy weight, increase activity, and make healthier choices.

The first class in Park Falls will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 14, at the Park Falls Center.

“The program offers a trained lifestyle coach to guide and encourage you — and you gain support from other participants,” said Linda Daubner, registered dietitian and diabetes educator at the Marshfield Clinic Park Falls Center. “This is a year-long course that begins with 16 weekly sessions, followed by six monthly follow-up sessions. The program focuses on helping prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes and offers support from other participants with the same goals as you.”
