Healthy Lifestyles

Healthy Lifestyles is a diabetes prevention program that works by promoting good health. This group-based, year-long program is designed to help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes through simple lifestyle adjustments and monitoring. This CDC-designed program provides you with a lifestyle coach and a group to support you. The program is split into two phases. The first four months consist of hour-long sessions held once a week. The final six sessions occur once a month. This program is proven to help people lose weight and lower their risk of type 2 diabetes by 58 percent. For just $60 you can get started on your new healthy lifestyle. Scholarships are available. Call 989-731-7718 for more information.

Online Freedom from Smoking

This free interactive course educates and modifies the behavior patterns of a smoker. The cessation program can be accessed day or night, 7 days a week, on any schedule the smoker chooses. Freedom from Smoking Online, like all Freedom From Smoking materials, is based on developing positive behavior change, building a support network, and focusing on effective relaxation and weight loss strategies after quitting.
