DPP is a proven way to prevent diabetes in people who have pre-diabetes or are at risk for diabetes, by making small lifestyle changes.
Developed by the Indiana University School of Medicine, DPP participants meet in a group setting where personal lifestyle goals are set for each individual. Each one hour session covers diet, exercise and behavior modification to help participants reduce and maintain individual weight loss by 5-7% and participate in regular physical activity.
Trained Lifestyle Coach Kerry Mihalko leads the 16 week program locally and helps participants learn to improve food choices, increase physical activity and learn coping skills to maintain weight loss and healthy lifestyle changes.
