The Diabetes Prevention Program meets once a week for 16 weeks, then once or twice a month for the rest of the year.  A trained lifestyle coach will provide guidance and encouragement throughout the program. Classes are one-hour, and will be held at the same time each week. 

The class begins on Monday September 24, 2018 at 12:00 PM, and classes will meet at Healthy Community Coalition, 105 Mt. Blue Circle, Farmington, ME across the street from the hospital.
