The Y's Diabetes Prevention Program is a group-based wellness program designed especially for people at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes or who are prediabetic. The program goals include reducing and maintaining a modest amount of weight loss and increasing physical activity. 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 over the course of 16 weeks. After the initial sessions, participants meet monthly for up to a year for added support in maintaining their lifestyle changes. Sessions will take place in the following communities: Ansonia, Branford, Bridgeport, Derby, Fairfield, Hamden, Milford, New Haven, North Haven, Stratford, Trumbull, and West Haven.
