About Us

WHAT BEGINS WITH EDUCATION, ENDS WITH PREVENTION

EDUCATE. EMPOWER. PREVENT. Our 3-step model has helped us impact over 600,000 lives in less than 8 years. Since our inception, educating the public about the importance of preventing type 2 diabetes has been paramount to what we do. Statistics show that 9 out 10 people with prediabetes are unaware they have this condition, therefore they may miss the opportunity to reverse it and prevent the development of type 2.

Using social media, blogging, and community outreach we have been able to share our message about prevention. Once a person knows their risk, we provide onsite and virtual prevention programs, 1-on-1 counseling, online nutrition education, and support groups to empower them to make the necessary long-term, healthy lifestyle changes to prevent diabetes.
