 Live Webinar: "Groovin' Groups"

In Lifestyle Coach training, we emphasize the power and importance of group engagement, support and problem solving as participants work towards lasting lifestyle changes. While groups can most certainly be positive, productive and powerful, facilitating groups can also be challenging. Whether it is the Negative Nelly, the Silent Samor the Chatty Charlie, managing challenging group behaviors and dynamics is a key role of the Lifestyle Coach. In this webinar, participants will discuss common challenges faced by group facilitators and strategies to prevent and/or manage these challenges as they arise.

In this webinar, attendees will explore strategies for helping participants find success with their physical activity goals, regardless of physical limitations and abilities.

National Diabetes Prevention Program Audience Profile:

Black or African American Person

The CDC's National DPP Health Marketing Support Team is excited to announce the release of the newly developed Black or African American Persons Audience Profile. If your team engages with the Black or African American audience about their health—specifically prediabetes or type 2 diabetes prevention and the National DPP—use this profile to enhance your understanding of this audience. This resource reviews social and health demographics, including diabetes prevalence and risk factors, and actionable approaches to building relationships. You can download the Black or African American Persons Audience Profile here.
