“We are seeing great success across the Panhandle with this evidence-based program; people are losing weight and changing their lives,” said Tabi Prochazka, Regional Lifestyle Program Coordinator. In classes that started last year, 204 participants lost over 1800 pounds. Evidence shows you can cut your risk for type 2 diabetes by over half by losing 5-7% of your body weight. For a 200-pound person that is 10- 15 pounds.
