What class participants say
“I attended meetings regularly with a notebook that said, ‘Get It Done,’ and I did. Don’t let the weight creep up on you. I prioritize this now, and I take time to cook well because I know I’ll benefit from it for the rest of my life.”
— Kathy Jacobson, Diabetes Prevention Program
“The class taught us how to eat and have healthy lifestyles. You just need the mindset that you really want to do it.”
— Phyllis Wikstrom, Diabetes Prevention Program
