Wyoming Department of Health: Make a Plan to Prevent Diabetes

With November being National Diabetes Awareness Month, the Wyoming Department of Health is reminding residents that simple changes such as losing a small amount of weight and becoming more active can go a long way in preventing type 2 diabetes. 

Wyoming Diabetes Prevention and Control Program Health Educator James Schick says that approximately 54,000 people in Wyoming have diabetes.

The Wyoming Diabetes Prevention and Control Program recommends residents take advantage of the helpful resources provided by the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) or the American Diabetes Association. You can contact either organization by calling 1-888-693-NDEP (6337) or 1-800-DIABETES (800-342-2383).
