Ho-Chunk Hope offers a special Lifestyle Balance Program for patients with prediabetes, gestational diabetes, or obesity.  This sixteen-session program will provide you with the tools needed to prevent or even reverse prediabetes.  The sessions are approximately one hour and focus on:

  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Self-Monitoring
  • Social Support
  • Weight Loss
  • Problem Solving
  • Behavior Change
  • Stress and Stimulus Control
  • Goal Setting

Participants will receive consistent support from staff members and learn how to set (SMART) goals that they will work toward achieving during the 25-week intensive classes. 

Screening is the Key to Prevention


"You can't manage, what you don't measure."  

Ho-Chunk Hope offers monthly screenings to help identify prediabetes or diabetes cases. 

To make testing as convenient as possible Ho-Chunk Hope sets up visits for screening at locations around the area including Little Priest Tribal College, Winnavegas Casino, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Dollar General and others. 

For more information about screenings, the DPP program, or for details on how to join, please call Camilla at 402-878-3146 or ask your physician for a referral.
