Let’s Talk About Preventing Diabetes

Did you know that 34 million Americans have diabetes and approximately 90-95% of them have Type 2 diabetes, according to the CDC? Type 2 diabetes is one of the few medical conditions that can mostly be managed by the patient with things like improving eating habits and creating an exercise routine. This is why Wisconsin Health Literacy (WHL) thought it would be important to put together a program covering this specific topic. 

The Let’s Talk About Preventing Diabetes workshop is a 60-minute interactive program designed to help participants learn about diabetes and how to read signs and symptoms of prediabetes before being diagnosed.

WHL will partner with community organizations across the state to deliver workshops on the following topics:

  • Understanding Type 2 Diabetes 
  • Difference between Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes
  • Risk factors of diabetes
  • Symptoms of diabetes
  • Damage diabetes can do to the body
  • Prediabetes vs. diabetes
  • 3 steps to prevent diabetes
  • Help from health insurance
