UHC is proud to announce it has achieved CDC Full Recognition for its Diabetes Prevention Program. This designation is reserved for programs that have effectively delivered a quality, evidence-based program that meets all of the standards for CDC recognition.
The Diabetes Prevention Program classes at UHC are adapted from the CDC to help patients avoid or delay Type 2 diabetes. In the hour-long sessions, participants receive lifestyle coaching for healthy eating, exercise and weight loss. Group sessions meet weekly for 16 weeks at UHC health centers in Kerman, Huron, Orange Cove, Parlier, Mendota and Fowler.
The sustained success of this lifestyle change program makes an invaluable contribution to the prevention of Type 2 diabetes, both in our communities and nationally.
"It is immensely gratifying to see the science of diabetes prevention being implemented to improve the public’s health," said Ann Albright, PhD, RDN, Director of the Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program and the Division of Diabetes Translation at the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
