Lifestyle Coach Training


What is a Lifestyle Coach?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Diabetes Prevention Program (CDC NDPP) must have lifestyle coaches who are trained to use a CDC-approved curriculum and who have the knowledge and skills to effectively deliver the program. The lifestyle coach’s ability to support participants, provide guidance, and help groups work together effectively is essential for a successful lifestyle change program.
