About Our Program

Our Let’s Prevent Diabetes Program trained over 40 promotores de salud as Lifestyle Coaches to lead the program’s weekly workshops and launched nearly 330 cohorts that enrolled 4,813 community participants at risk for type 2 diabetes. The average participant lost 5.22% of their body weight, and 55.35% of participants completed the program and reduced their risk of developing type 2 diabetes based on meeting program target metrics (loss of weight, A1c and/or BMI).

The Let’s Prevent Diabetes Program is a direct response to national goals to prevent or delay cases of type 2 diabetes under Healthy People 2020, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force’s evidence-based recommendations, and the National Diabetes Education Program Strategic Plan. It represented a substantial step forward in reducing diabetes disparities in underserved Hispanic communities and improving our nation’s health and well-being. Funding for the Let’s Prevent Diabetes Program was through a cooperative agreement with CDC (CFDA 93.261).
