LifeSmart is a diabetes prevention program that is offered through a partnership between Heritage Valley Health System and UPMC Health Plan. It provides healthy lifestyle programs for adults within the Heritage Valley Health System community who have been identified as having risk factors for prediabetes or metabolic syndrome.

LifeSmart nurse educators and dietitians work with your personal physician to help you lead a healthier lifestyle that can possibly prevent diabetes. The three components of LifeSmart include the following:

  • Group Lifestyle Balance (GLB) Program
  • Individual Nutrition Education
  • Exercise and Fitness Opportunities

LifeSmart is provided at no cost. Participants must have a Heritage Valley Health System Physician, but do not need to have UPMC Health Plan benefits to participate. If you believe you are eligible for LifeSmart, or have questions, please ask your Heritage Valley Health System Physician or call Heritage Valley Community Health Services at 1-866-328-8389.
