As a department, it is our mission to help patients establish health goals and provide you with tools and support you need to accomplish those goals. You can take charge of your health and make improvements for you and your family. It is important to remember that making just a few changes can lead to big results.

Diabetes Prevention Program

The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a year-long program that helps Chapa-De patients to avoid the onset of diabetes and to live healthier. Participants learn about eating healthy, being physically active and managing stress while attending weekly classes for 10 weeks, then 6 bi-weekly classes, followed by monthly sessions to help maintain weight loss and healthy lifestyles.

Participants in the program also get free access to exercise equipment and our lending library with DVDs and books about nutrition and fitness.

The program is open to all Chapa-De patients over the age of 18, who do not have a diagnosis of Diabetes.
