HUNTINGTON — Marshall’s Minority Health Institute is partnering with Cabell-Huntington Health Department and Chertow Diabetes Center to address Type II Diabetes, which affects African Americans and minorities at a higher rate that non-minorities.

The National Diabetes Prevention Program’s (NDPP) Kick-Off Event is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 28, from 5 p.m. until 7p.m. at Cabell-Huntington Health Department. The Cabell-Huntington Health Department and Chertow Diabetes Center will implement the NDPP to participants starting January 31, 2019 (time to be determined). The National Diabetes Prevention program is a partnership of public and private organizations working to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. The partners work to make it easier for people with prediabetes to participate in evidence-based, affordable, and high-quality lifestyle change programs to reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes and improve their overall health.
