Diabetes Prevention

Children’s Mercy offers Prevent T2, a 12-month diabetes prevention program, through the Employee Wellness Center. This program focuses on weight loss, healthy eating and healthy activity, and is led by Aubrey Neal, RD, LD, and Diabetes Educator at the Employee Wellness Center. With Prevent T2, you’ll set goals in three categories: nutrition, exercise and mindset. Classes are weekly and are currently conducted online via Microsoft Teams.

Cost


Prevent T2 is provided at no cost to you and your covered spouse and adult dependents enrolled in a CM medical plan. If you are not covered by a CM medical plan but are eligible to participate, you’ll pay $25 per session for Prevent T2. You can opt out of the program at any time.
