Little Falls Hospital and Herkimer County HealthNet are teaming up to offer the public a free course through the New York State Diabetes Prevention Program titled “Diabetes Prevention: Knowledge for a Healthy Future.”
The program will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 18, and will meet every Wednesday for 16 weeks from 6 to 7 p.m. in conference room A on the hospital’s fourth floor.
Annette McClenahan, RN, will be the lifestyle coach who will lead the weekly sessions to help participants improve their food choices, increase physical activity and learn coping skills to maintain weight loss and healthy lifestyle changes. The main goals of the program are to lose five to seven percent of body weight and become more physically active.
Anyone interested in attending the 16-week program is asked to contact Herkimer County HealthNet at 867-1552 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
