Florence Diabetes Prevention Program

HopeHealth is expanding its participation in the National Diabetes Prevention Program and beginning new sessions in Florence, Kingstree and Manning locations. For those interested in finding out details about the year-long program, ground zero meetings will be held:

• Feb. 5,  11:00 am
• Feb. 7, 11:00 am
• Feb. 6, 11:00 am

Designed to help people prevent or delay the onset of diabetes, this successful national program has been offered at the HopeHealth Medical Plaza in Florence for more than two years and is new to Kingstree and Manning.
Participants meet weekly for the first several months and learn proven strategies to make small life-style changes that can cut the risk of developing diabetes by more than half. These changes have helped participants significantly reduce their A1c, or average blood sugar level, lose weight, and increase their activity. Eligibility requirements include:
• 18 years or older
• a body mass index, or BMI, of 25 or higher (23 for Asians)
• a diagnosis of prediabetes

For more information on eligibility or participating in the program, call Sonda Jett-Clair, chronic disease prevention coordinator, at 843-432-3717.



HopeHealth educates its patients on the importance of having a health care home. As a primary care facility, HopeHealth’s medical team works to prevent and detect illness and the early onset of disease, provide routine physical examinations and promote overall healthy lifestyles.
