Life Rx Program

A yearlong lifestyle change initiative proven to help prevent and delay the onset of type 2 diabetes, Life Rx encourages participants to make lasting behavior changes involving nutrition, physical activity and coping strategies. Classes are instructed by a trained lifestyle coach.

This program is for pre-diabetics and those with specific risk factors. It does not treat or provide information for those already diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, talk to your primary care provider to learn about other services such as the diabetes care center, that may be right for you.
