CDC Diabetes Prevention Program

In addition to licensing our telehealth software, Fruit Street delivers the CDC’s Diabetes Prevention Program to health insurance companies using our own staff of registered dietitians.

The Digital Diabetes Prevention Program

Fruit Street’s team of in-house registered dietitians serve as coaches to deliver the science-backed program. Using the CDC-supported curriculum, coaches educate and facilitate interactive discussion among groups of 5-10 participants whose goal is to lose 5-7% of their starting weight by the end of the year long program. Class cover a variety of health and wellness topics including meal planning, tips for eating away from home, and ways to increase daily physical activity. Sixteen group classes are delivered in the first 6 months of the program and 6 group classes are delivered in the last 6 months. Participants are issued a wireless scale, Fitbit, and the Fruit Street mobile application which allows participants to take photos of their food and receive feedback from their coach. The well-researched lifestyle change program has been shown to significantly reduce participants’ risk of developing type 2 diabetes and associated chronic diseases.
