lifestyle coaches needed
Mississippi is assembling a statewide Lifestyle Coach workforce to help Medicare Part B beneficiaries feel good, look better, and live longer.
Thanks to the Diabetes Coalition of Mississippi, a workforce is being trained and deployed to provide the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program by coaching Medicare Part B recipients to make healthy lifestyle changes at no cost for a full year of participation.
“For those that qualify for this Medicare Part B benefit, a Lifestyle Coach will provide in-person or live streaming coaching sessions to help participants eat healthier, exercise regularly, have less stress, adopt healthy habits, and reduce their chances of experiencing the onset of type 2 diabetes,” said Phil Trotter, Diabetes Coalition prevention workstream chair. “We have just started to recruit for Lifestyle Coach positions in all zip codes, and these are paid positions which can be performed on a part-time basis.”
Prediabetes is a condition where individuals have higher-than-normal blood sugar which increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the future.
It is estimated that 814,000 Mississippians have prediabetes, and many do not know it.
