Riverside Community Health Foundation (RCHF) received full recognition from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for its National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP).
RCHF was listed on the CDC’s national registry of recognized diabetes prevention programs but as of September they received full recognition from the CDC. RCHF provides a lifestyle change program through NDPP that focuses on combating prediabetes and reducing the prevalence of diabetes in the United States.
RCHF’s NDPP cohort lost a total of 184lbs and averaged 411 minutes of exercise. Many of the participants that completed the cohort made lifestyle changes such as becoming Zumba instructors, advocates for health in their community and gaining membership with various health collaboratives.
“NDPP program was more than I bargained for,” said Thomas Forbes, NDPP Cohort A. “I was reluctant to commit to a year-long program initially but having completed the program I see that it was time extremely well spent. The education provided was extremely beneficial and something that can apply to my everyday regimen. The results that I’ve experienced will be life changing!”
