Below is a testimonial from a current Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes participant: I just got back from my doctor’s office where I had my annual physical today.  My blood work showed a huge improvement over a year ago.  My HbA1C is now 5.6 and it was 6.0. This means that I no longer have pre-diabetes!!!  My blood pressure is 106/75, down from 120/80!!!

Below is a testimonial from current Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes participant, Helen: “I recently finished Phase 1 of the program. My smart goal for Phase 1 was to get below the prediabetes A1C number before my 2020 physical. Last year I was 5.8 and last week I was at 5.6. Not a huge difference but significant enough.  Taking this class has educated me on many levels. After my husband’s death, I ate my way through grief. It wasn’t… Continue reading »
