One in three American adults has prediabetes. Without weight loss or moderate physical
activity, many of them develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years. But YOU can prevent
or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Searcy, Ark. –
The White County Extension Service will be offering a Diabetes Prevention Program
this fall. Classes start August 18, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the Duke Medical
Clinic, 705 Santa Fe Drive in Searcy. Classes will meet each week through December
The CDC estimates that more than 79 million Americans age 20 years and older have
prediabetes. Without intervention, 15 to 30 percent of these men and women will develop
type 2 diabetes within 5 years. But that doesn’t have to happen to YOU. This program
brings to White County an effective lifestyle change program proven to prevent or
delay the onset of type 2 diabetes by 58 percent.
Participants at high risk for type 2 diabetes will meet with a trained Lifestyle Coach
(Katie Cullum, County Extension Agent – Family & Consumer Sciences) for 16 weeks and
6 bi-monthly/monthly follow-up sessions to learn ways to incorporate healthier eating
and moderate physical activity into their daily lives. Participants work with the
Lifestyle Coach and the group to identify and overcome barriers to making sustainable
In order to qualify for the program, participants must:
“This program is not a weight loss program; it is a lifestyle program. Going on a
diet is not the treatment for diabetes or prediabetes - a lifestyle change is the
treatment,” said a previous program participant. The University of Arkansas System
Division of Agriculture is an equal opportunity/equal access/affirmative action institution.
If you require a reasonable accommodation to participate or need materials in another
format, please contact Katie Cullum at the White County Extension Office – 501-268-5394
or firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Dial 711 for Arkansas Relay.
