NMHC resuming Diabetes Prevention Program



The Diabetes and Nutrition Center will be resuming the Diabetes Prevention Program.


The Diabetes Prevention Program is a year-long program that focuses on preventing type 2 diabetes, or treating prediabetes, through encouraging weight loss, increasing physical activity, and developing tools to get off, and stay off, of the dieting bandwagon.


Current sessions that were previously meeting will be starting again this week via Zoom. Additionally, new programs will be starting in July and August, again via Zoom until deemed safe to meet in person. Before someone can join the program, they must qualify meeting the following qualifications:

  • Be at least 18 years old

  • Be overweight (Body Mass Index ≥25; ≥23 if Asian)

  • Not be pregnant

  • Have no previous diagnosis of type 1 or type 2 diabetes and.

  • Have a blood test result in the prediabetes range within the past year (see FAQ sheet below)

  • Take the Prediabetes Risk Test and receive a screening result of high risk for type 2 diabetes.


NMHC’s program is the only program in the state of the Missouri to receive full recognition from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which means the program has met and exceeded the standards as laid out by the CDC.


For those interested, or to just get more information, contact Amy Carroll at acarroll@nmchinc.org or call the Diabetes and Nutrition Center at 660.627.4493 ext. 412.
