Upcoming Live Webinar
The EPICC program is partnering with the Diabetes Training and Technical Assistance Center (DTTAC) to offer a webinar at no cost to you. All program coordinators, lifestyle coaches and support staff are invited to join us.
Title, Date and Time: The Challenge of Change: Understanding and Supporting Participant Behavior Change, July 12, 2017, 12-1:30 p.m.
Description: Webinar participants will first be exposed to a framework for understanding the complexity of behavior change and, within this framework, give considerations for how organizations and Lifestyle Coaches can optimize their role in supporting participants’ weight loss and physical activity goals in the DPP. In the second half of the webinar, an experienced Lifestyle Coach will reflect about practical strategies that have helped participants move closer to their DPP goals. There will be time for question and answer at the end of the session.
If you would like to explore opportunities for funding to help with your National DPP organization, please contact your local health department National DPP lead. They will let you know of technical support and funding opportunities available in your area.

If your organization needs training for your lifestyle coaches, the national agencies listed on the CDC’s website can help. The training centers have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with CDC to provide training. Some of them can also provide training for Master Trainers, who can, in turn, train lifestyle coaches in their own and partner organizations.
