DPP Group Lifestyle Balance™ (GLB) Master Trainer Program
Faculty members of the Diabetes Prevention Support Center (DPSC) of the University of Pittsburgh have partnered with Innovative Wellness Solutions™ to offer a Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) Group Lifestyle Balance™ Master Trainer Program to prepare experienced providers to deliver Lifestyle Coach training workshops for health providers within their organization.
A key component for successful DPP Group Lifestyle Balance™ program delivery is standardized and comprehensive training for health providers who are delivering the program. This allows for a high level of quality in program implementation, as well as long-term sustainability within large organizations that are delivering the DPP Group Lifestyle Balance™program.
The hands on, two-day DPP Group Lifestyle Balance™ Master Trainer workshop is conducted by expert faculty from the original DPP team, and is designed to provide experienced DPP Group Lifestyle Balance™ providers with the skills and materials necessary to provide Lifestyle Coach training and support for implementation in the community.
Required qualifications for application to the DPP GLB Master Trainer Program:
- Previous completion of formal Lifestyle Coach training
