Lifestyle Coach and Program Coordinator Videos

These advanced training videos are for Lifestyle Coaches and Program Coordinators of organizations who are planning to apply or are CDC-recognized. CDC wants organizations to understand the preparation and requirements before applying, and realize that watching each video will be central in helping them follow the detailed steps to successfully achieve full recognition by the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP).

The Lifestyle Coach series aims to communicate to organizations and its staff, the importance of self-assessment to determine if they are ready or not to implement National DPP, and what resources they will need in preparation, during, and after the program. This series ensures as a Lifestyle Coach they understand their role in participants’ success, adherence to the CDC DPRP Standards and data collection in terms of evaluation, and how helping their organization to successfully receive full recognition.

In addition, the Program Coordinator series presents the operational role and responsibilities of a Program Coordinator to ensure programmatic achievement in adherence with the CDC DPRP Standards. These videos encourage Program Coordinators to reach out to CDC on a more regular basis for technical support, and showcase tips for success and best practices to ensure the DPRP Standards and requirements are met prior to their data submission, analysis, and evaluation report.
