    Diabetes Prevention Program

    appleTo help New Haven residents lower their risk of developing Type II Diabetes, the Health Department now offers a diabetes prevention program. During the year-long program, participants meet as a group once a week for 16 weeks and then once a month for the remainder of the year. Session topics include achieving and maintaining a healthy diet and finding ways to increase one's daily physical activity.

    If you have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, have a family history of diabetes, or are overweight and get little exercise every day, you may be eligible to participate in the Health Department's Diabetes Prevention Program. To find out if you qualify, take the Risk Assessment 'quiz' below.

    For more information or to sign-up for the program, call Mary Ann Zavorskas at (203) 946-8186.
