DPP Programs

The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) has changed the way people approach type 2 diabetes prevention. The DPP shows that people who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes can prevent or delay the disease by losing a modest amount of weight through lifestyle changes (dietary changes and increased physical activity).

A registry of recognized diabetes prevention programs throughout Mississippi is available below.  All of these programs have agreed to use a CDC-approved curriculum that meets the duration, intensity, and reporting requirements described in the DPRP standards.

Mississippi Lifestyle Care

The Diabetes Coalition of Mississippi is supporting Mississippi Lifestyle Care a statewide delivery ecosystem for the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program and Findhelp social needs resource program. Thanks to grant funding provided by Novo Nordisk, Inc., a Lifestyle Coach workforce is being deployed to provide these programs in every Mississippi zip code. Medicare Part B participants will have the opportunity to engage in free lifestyle coaching for a year.

Mississippi is one of the first states to have a statewide Lifestyle Coach workforce to provide access to diabetes prevention.

Those who are interested in participating should visit www.MsLifestyleCare.com to find out if they are eligible for the program.
