I CAN Prevent Diabetes
Individuals and Communities Acting Now to Prevent Diabetes© (I CAN Prevent Diabetes) is an evidence-based lifestyle change program designed for people with prediabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed in people with prediabetes when they make simple changes to increase physical activity and lose weight.
This program provides tools for adults to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes:
- A four-month core phase with weekly sessions and an eight-month post-core phase with monthly sessions
- Instruction on diabetes prevention focusing on nutrition and physical activity
- Goal-setting around physical activity, food selection and intake, and other behaviors
- Personalized guidance and coaching from trained instructors
We offer I CAN Prevent Diabetes courses in select communities throughout Minnesota.
