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 »

I have seen some changes in my habits and I have become more mindful of what I eat and how much I eat.
