NYAIL is partnering with the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) to expand the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) to New Yorkers with disabilities. NACDD is one of 10 national organizations that has received funding from the Center for Disease Control to expand the DPP program to underserved areas and priority populations. The expertly designed program will help participants identified as high-risk by their doctor or diagnosed with pre-diabetes change their lifestyle habits to prevent diabetes.
As NACDD’s state partner in New York, NYAIL is supporting participant enrollment at Westchester Independent Living Center and the Putnam Independent Living Services. If you're interested in starting this lifestyle change program in Putnam, Dutchess, or surrounding counties please contact:
Westchester Independent Living Center (Putnam, Dutchess, and Surrounding Counties)
Phone: 845.228.7457 ext. 1106
A trained Lifestyle Coach on staff will guide you through the “Prevent T2 for All” inclusive program.
