The free, virtual program aims to help reduce diabetes in Wood County residents by using a CDC-approved curriculum that promotes lifestyle changes such as healthy eating, physical activity and managing stress. BGSU faculty and staff are also eligible to participate in the program and a healthcare providers' referral is required. Assess your risk and contact your provider to fill out the referral form.
