Midland Care’s 24 For Life program is a partnership with the American Diabetes Association. Donna Doel, with Midland Care, says the program is a lifestyle change program for participants at high risk for Type 2 Diabetes. Participants meet in groups with trained lifestyle coaches for 24 sessions to learn ways to incorporate healthier eating and moderate physical activity into their daily lives.
