National Diabetes Prevention Program Video

Lifestyle change programs are helping people with prediabetes prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. Research studies have shown that such programs can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by 58% in people at high risk for developing the disease.

In this video, participants in community-based programs, lifestyle coaches and healthcare professionals talk about how type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed by making lifestyle changes that include modest weight loss and increasing physical activity. People with prediabetes share their experience as participants in group lifestyle change classes and their journey to learn and keep healthy habits.

The video was filmed at a Y location in Louisville, Kentucky, one of the growing number of sites where the Y offers lifestyle intervention classes. The Y is one of the original providers of the lifestyle change program.
