New Hampshire has 7 programs to help with type 2 diabetes
CONCORD — New Hampshire residents at high risk for type 2 diabetes now can seek help from seven organizations in the state.
The National Diabetes Prevention Program helps participants reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes by learning to eat healthier, lose weight, become more physically active, and manage stress.
The state Department of Health and Human Services recently hosted a training session for 18 new "lifestyle coaches" who will offer the program throughout the state. There's also a new website, www.preventdiabetesnh.org, to link people to programs in their communities.
The seven programs are located in Colebrook, Concord, Dover, Keene, Manchester, Nashua and Wolfeboro.
