Diabetes Prevention Program is a group-based wellness program designed especially for people at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The program goals include reducing and maintaining weight loss and increasing physical activity for participants. In a group setting, a trained lifestyle coach helps participants learn skills for healthier lifestyles by healthy eating, increasing physical activity and other behavior modifications. After the initial sessions, participants meet monthly for up to a year for added support in maintaining their lifestyle changes.
