The National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) is a lifestyle modification program for adults in Madison County diagnosed as pre-diabetic or who are at a high risk for diabetes. An NDPP certified lifestyle coach helps participants decrease their risk for developing diabetes through regular meetings with a small group of people all working toward the same goal. In each of these meetings the lifestyle coach will present a new topic for discussion to help participants become more physically active, eat healthier, and manage day-to-day stress that gets in the way of their health goals. In the first phase of the program participants meet for one hour weekly for 16 weeks to create healthy changes in their life. In phase two they meet once monthly for 6-8 months to support and maintain these healthy changes. This will complete a one year program.
