In partnership with Denver Health since 2008 ,we are focused on preventing Type 2 diabetes. Using an evidenced-based curriculum we have changed the lives of approximately 4,000 DPP participants, offering at least 16 classes with 300 participants a year. In 2018 we obtained the recognition of the CDC.
We work with you to prevent Type-2 Diabetes. We start with a 16-week group-based class to help participants:
- Education and how to mangae your diabetes
- Nutrition classes and cooking tips (Cooking Matters)
- All of Us
- First Aid Certification
- Physical Activity FREE classes for all levels
- Strengthen Families
- Youth Mental Health First Aid
- CONFIANZA (Confidence)
- A1C (a common blood test used to diagnose type 1 and type 2 diabetes) FREE test
Cohorts start at different times during the year. We highly recommend potential participants call us.
Thanks to taking the Diabetes Prevention program I felt very motivated to make changes in the way I take care of my health. I resumed physical activity (since the pandemic I put it on pause), I reduced the food portions, I stopped drinking sodas and juices and I started drinking water.
Thanks to the healthy changes I made in my habits, in the 16 weeks of the program I lost 19 pounds.
Being in this group helped me, because I started to lose weight by myself (3 or 4 pounds) and then I stagnated… this group motivated me to continue with my healthy habits.
