What is a Lifestyle Coach?

To become a provider of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) organizations must have lifestyle coaches who are trained to use a CDC-approved curriculum and who have the knowledge and skills to effectively deliver the yearlong program.
