Description

Persons with disabilities (PWD) in Florida have limited opportunities for physical activity and nutritious food, leading to obesity rates nearly twice the national average and a greater risk of developing diabetes. Accordingly, Florida Disability and Health Program (DHP) has implemented an adapted National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) using an adapted curriculum. This poster will examine the implementation process, barriers and facilitators, and steps for continued improvement.
