Get Healthy, Charlottesville!
If you are one of the 1 out of 12 Charlottesville area residents with Type 2 Diabetes or one of the 1 out of 3 Charlottesville area residents with Prediabetes, we want to challenge you to get healthy and give you tools to help you succeed.
Here's how it works:
Charlottesville area residents with Type 2 Diabetes or Prediabetes are eligible to sign up for the 12 month BEATDiabetes Program at no cost.
The program will deliver text message-based support and motivation directly to your mobile phone in the course of your day-to-day life.
If you are successful in improving your blood sugars, you can earn entries in the $1000 BEATDiabetes Drawing held 3 times a year.
Participants with Type 2 can earn entry into the drawing by improving their hemoglobin A1C by at least 1 point or achieving a hemoglobin A1C under 7. Participants with prediabetes can earn entry into the drawing by getting their hemoglobin A1C or fasting blood glucose back into the normal, non-prediabetic range.
Sign-up is quick and easy.
