Prevent brings together the individualized attention of a dedicated, professional health coach with a curriculum based on an NIH-sponsored clinical trial that guides participants toward manageable but powerful goals. Combined with an understanding and supportive small group, a flexible online format, and a growing pool of healthy resources, Prevent is a profound, lifestyle-changing experience.
