Union County has received CDC Full Recognition for its diabetes prevention program. The National Diabetes Prevention Program offers evidence-based lifestyle change programs to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. The two major goals are 150 minutes of weekly exercise at a moderate pace as well as a 5-7% weight loss. Union County has held classes for 3 years to improve health, one person at a time and will continue to educate and strive to improve the overall health of even more community members to help them delay or prevent type 2 diabetes altogether. Union County has guided 18 at-risk individuals through the program since it began.
DOH-Manatee is kicking off its 100th anniversary with a dive into the archives that has already yielded first mention of County Commission interest in establishing a public health unit (Manatee County Commission Minutes dated August 6, 1921).

The team is currently looking to expand their capability to accommodate more clients per hour as they work through their pre-registration process.
