The Group Lifestyle BalanceTM Program provides education, encouragement and the tools necessary to help individuals reach their healthy lifestyle goals. This program is designed for non–diabetic, overweight individuals age 18 and older who have pre–diabetes and/or the metabolic syndrome. These conditions increase the risk for developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. At the conclusion of the initial 6 month Core Program (including 12 weekly, 1 bi-weekly and 3 monthly sessions), individuals will continue with monthly Post Core maintenance sessions for ongoing support and guidance. The Group Lifestyle BalanceTM program is designed for overweight adults who are at risk for developing diabetes.
The goals of the Group Lifestyle BalanceTM program are to:
- Lose 7% of weight through healthy eating.
- Do 150 minutes of brisk, physical activity each week
After attending the webinar, the attendee should be able to:
- Explain in general the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) translation to the community setting
- Define the role of the Lifestyle Coach and Master Trainer in creating a sustainable DPP program
- Describe the components needed to create a sustainable DPP program
