GemCare Wellness is recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a “Diabetes Prevention Program.” Our team of Registered Dietitians delivers a virtual proven program that emphasizes the need to make lasting lifestyle changes through a supportive virtual setting over the course of one year to reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes diagnoses.
Using the CDC-supported curriculum, coaches educate and facilitate interactive discussions among groups whose goal is to lose 5-7% of their starting weight by the end of the year-long program. Classes cover a variety of health and wellness topics including meal planning, tips for eating away from home, and ways to increase daily physical activity. Sixteen group classes are delivered in the first 6 months of the program, and 6 group classes are delivered in the last 6 months of the program.
