The Minority Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP) is a year-long, group-based program that helps people make realistic and achievable lifestyle changes.
Research shows that MDPP participants reach 5 to 7 percent weight loss and decrease their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent.
The Minority Diabetes Prevention Program is available to qualifying participants and includes a YMCA household membership. The Y and ABIPA offer the program at multiple locations and times in Buncombe, Henderson, and McDowell counties.
Led by a trained lifestyle coach, this diabetes prevention program addresses healthy eating, physical activity, stress, and other barriers that affect health.
