Get Healthy, Charlottesville!
If you have Type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, you are not alone. It is estimated that one of the 1 out of 12 Charlottesville area residents has Type 2 Diabetes and 1 out of 3 has prediabetes.
We want to challenge you to get healthy and give you tools to help you succeed.
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. Just click one of the buttons below and choose "Charlottesville Area Resident" when it asks what clinic/health system or community you a part of.
You can stop the texts at any point by texting "STOP" in reply if you decide the program is not helpful for you.
Together, we can move the needle on diabetes in our community:
Fewer people with Type 2 diabetes
Better blood sugar control
Fewer diabetes complications
Decreased healthcare disparities in diabetes rates and complications
MOVE the NEEDLE
