County offers free diabetes prevention program in Niagara Falls

A free Diabetes Prevention Program begins Jan. 31 at the American Legion, 8643 Buffalo Ave., Niagara Falls.

The 16-week program is sponsored by the Niagara County Department of Health, in collaboration with Niagara County Office for the Aging.

Prediabetes is a serious health condition that can lead to diabetes, heart disease and stroke. A trained lifestyle coach will lead weekly sessions from 6 to 7 p.m. to help participants improve their food choices, be more active and learn coping skills to maintain weight loss.

Groups interested in scheduling a free Diabetes Prevention Program, a Diabetes Self-Management Workshop or a Chronic Disease Self-Management Workshop should call the county Department of Health Nursing Division at 278-1900.
