Live Webinar: "Powerful Questions"

Asking questions as a coach can inspire deep reflection, reveal unrecognized strengths, and create pivotal moments for participants. While the CDC curricula offer starting questions for Lifestyle Coaches, it is often the unscripted moments in a program session that a powerful

question has the potential to impact a participant. In this webinar, facilitators will discuss the potential impact of powerful questioning, provide examples and practice

powerful questioning.

American Medical Association (AMA) Webinar

96 million adults have prediabetes, a serious health condition characterized by blood glucose levels that are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnostic for type 2 diabetes. Among adults with prediabetes, only 19% report being told by a health care professional that they have this condition. Primary care providers (PCPs) along with their care teams and healthcare organizations play critical roles in preventing type 2 diabetes, particularly among patients with prediabetes. Processes that improve care include systematically identifying individuals with prediabetes, engaging individuals in shared decision-making regarding evidence-based treatment. Gina Aquino and Jill Yore from Henry Ford Health System will discuss how they integrated their screening and referral process for diabetes prevention into their Electronic Health Record (EHR).
