Health Equity and the DPP: An Introduction

Competency: Diversity & Inclusion
Thursday, February 27th, 2020 @1:00pm-2:30pm ET  
Inequities are all around us and experienced differently by different groups of people. Understanding the basis for the inequities is key for organizations and Lifestyle Coaches to implement and deliver the National DPP in such a way that enables all participants to reap the benefits of risk reduction. In this introductory webinar on health equity,  Lifestyle Coaches will learn the foundation for inequities that exist in diabetes, what contributes to these inequities, and potential problems that individual participants are facing on their journey toward a healthy lifestyle.  Resources for understanding health equity in communities as well as practices for implementing and delivering a National DPP program that is inclusive for all participants will be discussed. 
*Future webinars will expand on health equity and explore best practices for addressing contributing factors such as the social determinants of health, bias and lack of cultural competency.
