The program is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach and meets one hour per week for 16 weeks, followed by at least six monthly follow-up sessions.

The sessions cover healthy eating, physical activity, and lifestyle changes to help participants achieve the goals that lead to the prevention or delay of a diabetes diagnosis.
