About this program

If you have prediabetes or believe you may be at risk for developing diabetes and are overweight, there is good news for you. You don't have to get diabetes! There are changes you can start making now to help prevent diabetes. The National DPP, based on research form the National Institutes of Health, shares the information and skills you need. It has been shown to reduce the number of new cases of type 2 diabetes by as much as 58 percent and even more in people who are 60 and older! What is it? The ""National Diabetes Prevention Program,"" is a proven intensive lifestyle program that teaches you how to build your plan to prevent diabetes. It is designed to help you break down behaviors into small manageable steps. You will be in a small group with other people who are also changing their routines to prevent diabetes. A 12-month group-based program with 16 one hour weekly sessions for the first four months, followed by once-per-month sessions for the next eight months, designed to be interactive and fun! Topics include healthy eating, weight loss, increasing physical activity, reducing stress, problem solving, motivation, and long-term maintenance of healthy lifestyle changes. Weekly weigh-ins and tracking food intake and activity levels are part of this program. It is led by a trained lifestyle coach who facilitates this small group of people with similar goals. The smaller class size means there will be opportunities to hear, learn, and share with others what works best. If you are truly ready to make a lasting difference in your health, reduce your risk of developing diabetes, and can commit your time and energy, register now by calling the health line at 404-365-0966.
