The Diabetes Education and Self-Management Program at Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) is offering a free pre-diabetes class to the community. This two-hour class is open to anyone in the community who wants to learn more about preventing diabetes, including lifestyle changes like healthy eating and exercise.
No physician referral is needed to participate. Visit our event calendar or call 770-219-0966 to register or to get more information about upcoming classes.
NGMC offers this class to help educate the community on pre-diabetes and metabolic syndrome; identify risk factors for pre-diabetes; and promote strategies for meal planning, weight loss and exercise.
This class is designed for those with a family history of diabetes or other risk factors; those whose blood sugar is “a little elevated;” or those who want to learn how to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
