Event Description

National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) is a collaborative, community-based, lifestyle change program designed for people with pre-diabetes. It is based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s curriculum and National Diabetes Prevention Recognition standards. Hundreds of in-person and online lifestyle change programs nationwide teach participants to make lasting lifestyle changes, like eating healthier, adding physical activity into their daily routine, and improving coping skills.

This is a yearlong program that meets weekly for 8 weeks, twice a month for 4 months, and then once a month for the remainder of the year. You will have the support of your class leader and group participants to eat healthier, increase your activity level, and learn more about prediabetes. The goal is to lose 5-7% of your weight. This class will be held virtually via VidyoConnect: All participants must have an email, audio and visual technology capabilities. This could be a laptop or tablet with a camera and microphone, or a smart phone. The invite link to classes and session materials will be emailed to participants at the beginning of each week class is scheduled. This class may be held in-person at the Carris Health Skylark Clinic depending on current situation with COVID-19. Your class leader will keep you informed of any changes.

Class Leader: Anna Leitch, RD, LD
