If you have prediabetes, you can cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes in half by losing 5-7 percent of your body weight. That is about 10 to 14 pounds for a person weighing 200 pounds. In Tampa General Hospital's Prevent T2 lifestyle change program, participants work in a group with a trained lifestyle coach to learn the skills needed to lose weight, become more physically active, and manage stress. Prevent T2 is a part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and is proven to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.  This fee covers program materials and light refreshments. Registration is required as seating is limited.
