Learn to Prevent Type-2 Diabetes

(March 14, 2019 - Carroll Township, Pa.)

Approximately 84 million Americans have prediabetes; nine out of 10 people have prediabetes and don't even know it. Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH) is hosting a diabetes prevention program, "Learn to Prevent Type-2 Diabetes," beginning Monday, April 29. The 16-week prevention program is designed to educate and work with participants about lifestyle changes in the areas of nutrition, physical activity and behavioral change.

For 19 years, MVH has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for its outpatient Diabetes Self-Management Education. This recognition requires standards of practice submitted for review every four years. Our program is required to bill insurance for participation due to guidelines set by the ADA. The ADA believes that our service offers high-quality education that is an essential component of effective diabetes treatment.
