I CAN Prevent Diabetes in Western Minnesota

Nutrition Educator Lynn Lokken helps folks in Dawson, MN make lifestyle changes.  And she's not alone

Four nutrition educators, trained as Lifestyle Coaches in the Individuals and Communities Acting Now to Prevent Diabetes© (I CAN Prevent Diabetes or ICANPD) program, are teaching classes for people at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes.

These classes are part of the Western Minnesota ICANPD pilot project that launched this February. ICANPD's evidence-based curriculum helps participants improve food choices and increase physical activity.
