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.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the webinar participants will:

  • Understand the difference between diabetes and prediabetes

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

  • Gain an understanding of CDC’s research on prediabetes

  • Learn strategies to integrate prediabetes programming within a Medical Fitness facility
