October 1st, 2013, Picture Wellness launched services in Nashville and Knoxville,
TN. By December 17th, 2013, a little over 100 people have lost 733 pounds and 20%
have reached their yearly goal in just eight weeks.
We are excited to be launching phase II of the program in March of 2014, with a goal
of reaching another 100 state employees in the Nashville and the Knoxville area.
The CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program is an evidence-based lifestyle change
program for preventing type two diabetes.
- It can help people cut their risk of developing type two diabetes in half.
- The Diabetes Prevention Program research study showed that making modest behavior
changes helped participants loose 5% to 7% of their body weight—that is 10 to 14
pounds for a 200-pound person.
- These lifestyle changes reduced the risk of developing type two diabetes by 58% in
people with prediabetes.
- Participants work with a lifestyle coach in a group setting to receive a 1-year lifestyle
change program that includes 16 core sessions (usually one per week) and six post-core
sessions (1 per month).
