Healthy lifestyle classes and activities
Eat, Move, Live!
City of Hope's 5-week or 12-week Eat, Move, Live! programs for adults and children encourage physical activity and healthy eating for cancer prevention.
These classes teach families practical nutritional skills, such as reading food labels and preparing healthy meals, as well as offering fun physical activities such as dance and Zumba. Classes are available in both English and Spanish.
Studies show that participants are less likely to develop prediabetes and diabetes, thus reducing their risk for cancer and chronic disease.
Roots of Hope
A collaboration between City of Hope and Los Angeles Episcopal Diocese, the research program Roots of Hope analyzes how modifying the unhealthy behaviors of individuals with prediabetes or who are at risk for type 2 diabetes can reduce their risk factors for chronic disease.
The research being conducted as a result of Roots of Hope will likely lead to a nationally recognized program by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
