Abdul Sulayman/Tribune Chief Photographer A Philadelphia police officer is crediting a preventative health program with helping him make significant lifestyle changes. For the last six months, Eric Scott has participated in Temple University Health Systems Diabetes Prevention Program. The goal of the long-term program is to help people prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes, which occurs when the body doesnt produce enough insulin to regulate blood glucose. Diabetes can increase the risk of heart attack, kidney failure, nerve damage or stroke. The American Diabetes Association notes there are about 30 million Americans living with the condition, while 86 million have prediabetes. Prediabetes occurs when your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. The free yearlong program, which is led by the Temple Center for Population Health, was launched back in 2014. Since its inception, 22 people have graduated from the program which is funded with a grant from the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Innovation and the Philadelphia Department of Public Health. Scott was introduced to the Diabetes Prevention Program through Law Enforcement Health Benefits in October 2016. I thought the program would be good and it has proven to be effective, he said. Program participants meet once a week in small groups for the first six months and then monthly for the remainder of the program. The sessions are led by trained Continue reading >>

Over 800 student hours were dedicated to raising awareness about prediabetes and the National Diabetes Prevention Program. Some students elected to focus on a national campaign called Screen at 23 , to build awareness about prediabetes and diabetes in the Asian American community. If you are interested in joining the Diabetes Prevention Committee, contact Susan Lopez-Payan . The DDP Lifestyle Coach Support Network continues to meet on the first Friday of every other month.

Perceived Benefits And Barriers To The Diabetes Prevention Program

Perceived Benefits And Barriers To The Diabetes Prevention Program

Perceived Benefits and Barriers to the Diabetes Prevention Program Perceived Benefits and Barriers to the Diabetes Prevention Program Nicole Johnson, DrPH, MPH, MA - University of South Florida, Stephanie T. Melton, PhD, MPH, MA - University of South Florida, Diabetes prevention interventions have a proven positive effect on health outcomes. The goal of this project is to understand the factors that motivate and deter people with prediabetes from utilizing evidence-based education programs, such as the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). Formative research was conducted among program facilitators, health providers who care for diabetes patients, and patients living with prediabetes to generate an in-depth understanding of perceptions of the program. The methodology included a mixed methods approach. A total of 97 interviews and 5 focus groups were conducted with health providers, program facilitators, and patients. An online survey was administered to 50 patients with prediabetes. All three populations agreed the DPP aided in implementing lifestyle changes and preventing the onset of type 2 diabetes, and the classes provided a positive experience for support, in-depth discussion, and opportunities for learning how to make lifestyle changes. However, while the overall benefits of the program were expressed, there were barriers noted by all populations that affect program utilization and physician referrals. General lack of knowledge, cost of the program, and the significant time commitment necessary to complete the program were barriers discussed. The Diabetes Prevention Program is successful in helping individuals with prediabetes make positive lifestyle changes. The lack of knowledge about the program, however, is a deterrent for utilization. Creation of a social marke Continue reading >>

Healthy Interactions Becomes A Cdc Recognized Organization For Diabetes Prevention Programs (dpp)

Healthy Interactions becomes a CDC recognized organization for Diabetes Prevention Programs (DPP) Posted on Apr 11, 2016 by Barbara Eichorst Healthy Interactions is now a recognized organization* for the Centers of Disease Controls (CDC) Diabetes Prevention Program. And two weeks ago, CMS proposed a prediabetes prevention program expansion and reimbursement that is expected to be approved by the end of 2016. Clearly, the war on diabetes is intensifying. The US currently has over 29 million people living with diabetes and 86 million with prediabetes, making it a count of one in three adults. Unfortunately, nine out of 10 adults with prediabetes dont even know they have it. Prediabetes is a reversible cardiometabolic risk factor with a A1c result between 5.7 and 6.4% and 100 to 125 mg/dL (5.6 to 6.9 mmol/L). Evidence-based National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) funded a 3-arm Randomized Control Trial with placebo, Metformin and intensive lifestyle coaching indicated that 5-7% body weight loss reduced the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by 58% in those with prediabetes (over three years) and 71% in those over age 60. The CDC approved, evidence-based DPP aims to slow and prevent the development of type 2 diabetes by: Lay and health professional lifestyle coaches teach in-person or virtual group classes of 8-15 participants Comprehensive program focused on weight loss through exercise, healthy eating, and behavior modification Maintenance phase (six months) with monthly maintenance sessions Examples of topics covered in core curriculum include: balancing calories, strategies for healthy eating out, problem solving/coping, social cues, overcoming physical activity barriers, and managing stress.

Dpp Group Lifestyle Balance Curriculum

Dpp Group Lifestyle Balance Curriculum

Click here to download the DPP Group Lifestyle Balance materials The DPP Group Lifestyle Balance(GLB) Program is a comprehensive lifestyle behavior change program adapted directly from the successful lifestyle intervention used in the National Institutes of Health funded Diabetes Prevention Program ( DPP ). The original individually administered DPP Lifestyle Balance intervention (copyright 1996; 2011) was developed and written at the University of Pittsburgh by the DPP Lifestyle Resource Core on behalf of the DPP Research Group. With congressional funding (administered by the Air Force Medical Service) members from the original DPP lifestyle team collaborated to adapt and update the individual intervention to a groupbased program with a recommended delivery schedule of 22 sessions during a 1-year period of time. The instructional content of the DPP 16-session curriculum was fully consolidated into 12-sessions designed to be administered weekly. Other modifications to core content included a broad behavioral focus on the principles for making healthy food choices and meal planning, instructions to combine both calorie and fat self-awareness and monitoring from the beginning of the intervention, and inclusion of the pedometer as a valuable tool to help increase self-awareness and motivation for increasing overall movement and physical activity levels. Individuals who take part in the program are asked to selfmonitor weight, food intake and physical activity levels and are given feedback regarding their progress. Participants generally receive a variety of materials including Group Lifestyle Balancesession handouts, a Fat and Calorie Counter, selfmonitoring books for keeping track of food, physical activity and weight, a pedometer with instructions and logs, and a chart Continue reading >>
