MINOT, N.D. - Wednesday in Bottineau County is the start of a year long National Diabetes Prevention Program.

This program is offered for pre-diabetic men and women over the age of 18 who want to make a lifestyle change.

For one year, you will meet with trained lifestyle coaches who will teach you about strategies to help lose weight, exercise more and decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

There is a registration fee, but it is unique. You pay $50 upfront and if you complete the entire program, you are reimbursed the full amount.

If you have any questions about whether you qualify for the program or to register, call Erin Caroline at (701) 228-2253.
