Diabetes Prevention Program
The Diabetes Prevention Program uses CDC-approved curriculum to educate, support, and inspire participants with prediabetes or a past history of gestational diabetes. The program is one year in duration and includes lifestyle change management support, education on nutrition and physical activity, and social support provided by a group of peers. The program is facilitated by a CDC-certified Lifestyle Coach. Participants in this program have cut their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by 58% (71% for people over 60 years old).
Amelia Storm, CHES, serves patients as a Lifestyle Coach to help them prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes. Amelia is also the Lifestyle Coach for our IBT program.
The Chronic Kidney Disease Clinic is a kidney care clinic designed to slow or halt the progression of CKD. Patients who are in stages 2-4 (pre-dialysis) are seen at the CKD Clinic by Dr. Rodney Faucett, DO, and Oksana Rutkevich, RD. This multifaceted approach to kidney care helps ease the burden on patients who are wanting to maintain or improve their kidney health, while also serving as support for patients who are waiting to see Nephrology.
Intensive Behavioral Therapy Program (IBT)
The CDC-certified Lifestyle Coach also runs a program called Intensive Behavioral Therapy for Obesity. This program is available to participants who have a BMI of 30 or above and who do not have prediabetes. The program is one year in duration and includes information on how to manage lifestyle modifications in physical activity, nutrition, and participants’ approaches to both.
