Is this program for me?
This program complements the Standard Coaching program of the Get Healthy Information and Coaching Service®.
The Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Program was specifically designed for people at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. If you are over 40 years of age, or are Aboriginal, your Get Healthy Service health coach will assess your risk of type 2 diabetes by asking a few short questions. Based on your answers, you will be enrolled in either the Type 2 Diabetes Prevention program or the Standard Coaching program.

If you already have type 2 diabetes, you will be enrolled in the Standard Coaching program.
