Get Healthy, Central Virginia!
If you have Type 2 diabetes or prediabetes, you are not alone.
It is estimated that 1 out of 12 Central Virginia 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
Central Virginia 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 "Central Virginia 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.
*Residents of Charlottesville, Albemarle, Greene, Louisa, Fluvanna, Nelson, Orange, and Augusta Counties are eligible
Together, we can move the needle on diabetes in our community:
