AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER/ADA EMPLOYER


Position: Transylvania County Lifestyle Coach
Minority Diabetes Prevention Program (NCMDPP) Grant

NC Alliance for Public Health Staffing
Location: Transylvania County
Position Hours: 10-19 hours/week Pay: $15.00/hour
Closing date: Open Until Filled

The purpose of the MDPP initiative is to create healthier communities by:

  • Engaging at risk populations for participation in Diabetes Prevention Programs (DPP)
  • Screening at risk populations for pre-diabetes
  • Referring to Diabetes Prevention Programs
  • Offering the Diabetes Prevention Program to minority communities in Region 1

The primary purpose of this position is to engage, screen and deliver the Diabetes Prevention Program that includes the CDC curricula, Prevent T2 or Prevenga el T2, to priority populations within Transylvania County.

Lifestyle Coaches support participants by providing information, encouraging progress, and working with the group to address any challenges or barriers that arise.

  • Deliver the curriculum in Spanish (where applicable)
  • Prepare for each session (i.e. review lesson plan as it is outlined in the CDC curriculum, provide feedback for participants on their food and activity trackers on a weekly basis)
  • Ensure participant and program data is entered into the MDPP database on a weekly basis
  • Participate in all mandatory NC DPH coach calls
  • Maintain an outreach log to track correspondence with MDPP participants who are unable to attend a class
  • Assist to coordinate screenings for prediabetes among priority populations within Transylvania County
  • Refer at risk people to local DPP classes
  • Refer individuals with a diabetes diagnosis to a Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) program
  • Provide DPP classes with items and services to address participant barriers to participating in the DPP classes; including transportation, childcare, supplies, etc.
  • Assist in administering an incentive program for participants
  • Complete required evaluation and program activities
  • Complete two-day Diabetes Prevention Program Lifestyle Coach training as outlined in the most recently approved Division of Public Health Agreement Addendum (registration covered through available grant funding)

    Suggested Qualifications:

  • Bilingual preferred
  • Knowledge of the principles of behavior change and group facilitation
  • Ability to communicate effectively with individuals and in front of a small group
  • Demonstrate ability to leverage group dynamics by facilitating and fostering relationships with and among participants
  • Ability to guide behavior change without prescribing personal actions or solutions
  • Ability to work with a diverse group of people of varying ages, ethnicities, life experiences, etc.
  • Active listening skills
  • Enthusiasm and a positive attitude
  • Knowledge of basic health, nutrition, and fitness principles
