Could a Diabetes Prevention Program be just what the doctor ordered for Medical Fitness Facilities
Presented by Michaela Conley and Janet Masters


Prediabetes is a serious health condition that increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 of every 3 US adults had prediabetes in 2010. That is 79 million Americans aged 20 years or older. The vast majority of people living with prediabetes do not know they have it. A person with prediabetes has a blood sugar level higher than normal, but not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes.

This webinar will help Medical Fitness professionals to better understand the issue and the opportunity of prediabetes within the Medical Fitness Facility and community it serves.

  • Understand the difference between diabetes and prediabetes

  • Be able to state key statistics on the magnitude of the issue
