The Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County (DOH Santa Rosa) recognizes November as Diabetes Awareness Month, a month set aside every year to raise awareness about diabetes and promote the importance of taking steps to confront diabetes as a critical health issue. Healthy living is an ongoing journey – one that’s important to keep you energized for the things that matter most. Celebrate the people and activities you love by prioritizing healthy habits to keep living your best life.

The lifestyle change program provides practical tips that are proven to work, you’ll develop habits that will last long after the program is done. By losing 5-7% of your body weight (10-14 pounds for a 200-pound adult) and adding 150 minutes of weekly physical activity to your routine, you can cut your risk for type 2 diabetes in half!  Instead of taking away from what you enjoy doing or how you spend your time, we can help.  

Additional information is available online at DOH Santa Rosa Diabetes Prevention.  Please call 850-564-2251 to reserve a spot in Prevent T2. We are here to support you on your health journey, so you do not have to do it alone. Call today to find a community working to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes so you can keep celebrating the life you love all year long.
