The Allingtown/West Haven Senior Center is among several locations in southern Connecticut chosen to participate in a lifestyle change program.
The free program, aimed at preventing Type 2 diabetes and heart disease, meets from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Wednesdays at the senior center, 201 Noble St.
The interactive program discusses losing weight and keeping it off; shopping, cooking and eating healthy; turning routine into enjoyable physical activities; and coping with stress and thinking positive.
To qualify, candidates must be considered pre-diabetic at the time of enrollment, which can be documented by a physician’s note, A1C results between 5.7 and 6.4, or by a questionnaire at the senior center.
For more information, call the center at (203) 937-3507.
