DTTAC's Lifestyle Coach Training Director, Sarah Piper, MPH, CDE, was recently interviewed by Atlanta’s NPR Station, 90.1 WABE.

In a program called “Closer Look with Rose Scott and Denis O’Hayer”, Sarah addresses the staggering statistics of diabetes in the USA, as well as ways to reduce type 2 diabetes risk, such as increased physical activity and moderate weight loss. “Sounds easier than it is”, she explains, and goes on to mention the importance of lifestyle change programs – like the National Diabetes Prevention Program – in teaching those with prediabetes how to make these changes safely, gradually and keep them throughout their lives.

We are pleased to get the topic of diabetes prevention on the forefront of public health, as November is Diabetes Awareness Month.
