Diabetes Prevention Program

Description:

The Diabetes Prevention Program groups meet once a week for 16 weeks, and then once a month for 6 months to maintain healthy lifestyle changes. During each session, your lifestyle coach will teach a lesson and lead a group discussion.

You will learn to:

  • Eat healthy
  • Add physical activity to your life
  • Manage stress
  • Stay on track when eating out

The Diabetes Prevention Program lifestyle coaches have the experience and training to help you reach your goals. Your lifestyle coach will help you:

  • Learn the facts about healthy eating and physical activity and explain how these behaviors will help reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes
  • Set and meet your goals
  • Build relationships with other participants 
  • Work as a group to meet challenges
  • Understand and respond to your food cues
  • Stay motivated
  • Solve problems that can get in the way of healthy changes

The Diabetes Prevention Program is led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is proven to help people with prediabetes prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.

As part of the Diabetes Prevention Program group, you will work with other participants and a trained lifestyle coach to learn the skills you need to make lasting changes. These changes include losing a modest amount of weight, being more physically active, and managing stress. Being part of a group provides support from other people who are facing similar challenges and trying to make the same changes. Together you can celebrate successes and find ways to overcome obstacles.
