Print Article

Cabinet Peaks Medical Center seeks participants for an annual, 16-week health and wellness class taught by registered dietitian Nicole Kapan.

The weight loss and exercise program, called PREVENT, aims to motivate people to stay healthy through group activities, educational sessions and one-on-one guidance from life coaches, a news release states.

It targets adults at risk for pre-diabetes or developing cardiovascular disease.

Adults are eligible if they are overweight, have medical clearance, and have one or more of the following risk factors: pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or triglycerides or have had gestational diabetes.

According to the news release, the course starts with each participant getting a personal assessment by a lifestyle coach, followed by 16 weeks of classes, called “Core Sessions,” led by those coaches.

“You will be in classes with others who have similar struggles and health concerns,” the news release states. “The remainder of the program is tailored to help participants maintain the healthy lifestyles they were taught in the core sessions.”

The program starts Sept. 4 and will be held from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays.

To learn more, ask your physician or call the Cabinet Peaks Diabetes and Nutrition Education Department at 406-283-7316.

Cabinet Peaks Medical Center and the Montana Cardiovascular Disease and Prevention Program sponsor the program.
