Lifestyle coaches are accessible, collaborative, and culturally competent peer educators, health promoters, community health workers, or diabetes care and education specialists trained in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s PreventT2 curriculum to provide effective guidance and support for program participants.
ADCES is approved by the CDC to provide introductory, advanced, and master training for lifestyle coaches to deliver CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs. Additional information on staffing your CDC-recognized diabetes prevention organization can be found on CDC’s website.
