DTTAC Lifestyle Coach Training was great. I came thinking I knew what I needed to know to teach the National Diabetes Prevention Program and left with a new wealth of knowledge on group facilitation, a new respect for the strength of the research base of the program, and a renewed enthusiasm for getting a program going at home.
