The lifestyle change I made is now my “new normal”

— Laurie Bomgardner

I found out about LFHS through a friend when she saw a flyer at the Lebanon Farmer’s Market for the T2: Diabetes Prevention Program. My doctor had told me I was pre-diabetic and I immediately went home, cleaned out my cabinet and became committed to changing my whole life and way of eating. Through LFHS’s Diabetes Prevention Program I was able to stay on track and it made me accountable for my habits. I came to class religiously for one-year.

The class has changed my whole way of eating and looking at food. After doing this program, the lifestyle change I made is now my “new normal”. I’ve lost over 40 pounds, lowered my blood pressure significantly and the change even allowed me to lower the dosage of the medications I am taking. The class helped me a lot and I even look forward to being weighed each class.


Worked in every LFHS location

I first came to LFHS in 1981 as the community health educator. From the moment I entered the doors, it felt like family.
