Raises short-term risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. A a person with pre-diabetes is at a 3- to 10-fold higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

According to the CDC, having Lifestyle Coaches who are properly trained to implement the lifestyle change program is vital for high program quality and consistent results. Lifestyle Coaches deliver the program, and starts with quality training from a Master Trainer. There is ongoing evaluation and professional development throught the program.
Having a Master Trainer allows our organizations to scale and sustain lifestyle change programs efficiently over time, as the number of program participants grows or as additional Lifestyle Coaches are needed.
Our Master Trainer was trained at the Diabetes Training and Technical Assistance Center (DTTAC) at Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health. DTTAC trains and prepares qualified individuals to serve as Master Trainers Select, who can provide Lifestyle Coach Training for the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) for in-person delivery of the lifestyle change program within their facility
