Midland Care’s 24 for Life Diabetes Prevention Receives Full Recognition by CDC

Midland Care Connection has earned Full Recognition for their 24 for Life Diabetes prevention program by the national Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The program helps individuals with prediabetes implement lifestyle changes that reduce the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.

“The 24 for Life program has been helping community members for the last two and a half years,” said Donna Doel Assistant Coordinator of 24 For Life. “We teach people about healthy lifestyle changes and provide support through their journey.”

The designation is reserved for programs that have effectively delivered a quality, evidence-based program that meets all of the standards for CDC recognition.

“Being recognized by the CDC is important to our community because it provides the vital assurance that the information we share, and lifestyle changes we encourage are evidenced-based and trustworthy information. Community members can be rest assured that we effectively deliver a quality program that meets all of the standards that CDC expects,” said Doel.

The 24 for Life program has continued throughout the pandemic via Zoom meetings and teleconferencing. New classes are forming, and community members can sign up to participate.

“Type 2 Diabetes is preventable. We want to connect with as many community members as possible that may be at risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes,” said Bushra Hashmi, Director of Medical Services for Midland Care. “We know changing your lifestyle can be hard but with the help of 24 for Life, you can prevent Type 2 Diabetes.
