Mount Desert Island Hospital offers a comprehensive Diabetes Prevention Program several times a year. The program is free and requires a 12-month commitment. The classes meet weekly for 16 weeks and then monthly for the remainder of the year.

The community based Diabetes Prevention Program helps participants make small successive changes in diet, physical activity and stress management. By following the program, participants can lose 7-10 percent of their body weight and lower their chances of developing Type 2 diabetes by 58 percent.

The new session begins on August 29 and will meet on Wednesdays from 4:00-5:00 pm. This program will take place at the Cadillac Family Practice Building, 2nd floor conference room at 322 Main Street in Bar Harbor.
