We will schedule your FREE pre-assessment consultation before the start date of the "STOP-D: Stop diabetes before it starts" program. You will enroll and pay the program fees once we determine if this program is a great fit for you.
The STOP-D™ program is a high-touch comprehensive program aimed at preventing diabetes/better managing diabetes, and losing 5-10% of your body weight in a sustainable lifestyle way. The CDC has recognized STOP-D as part of its National Diabetes Program. We have culturally adapted the curriculum and augmented it with our powerful MEDS™ Lifestyle hallmark platform (Meditation, Exercise, Diet, and Sleep).
The yearlong STOP-D program consists of:
- Interactive, engaging Zoom classes
- Tailored personal coaching
- Social support
- Weekly email motivations
- Drop-in Office Hours with Dietitian
The $799 fee for the program (about $67 per month) is FSA/HSA reimbursable.
Over 300 participants have enrolled in the program and have seen a positive change in weight, improvements in HbA1c, and many have reduced or even stopped their dependence on medications.
Here is feedback from a few participants in the program:
In the midst of a global pandemic, social unrest, and a fast-paced job, this program has been a beacon of light and a wonderful investment. I have gained the tools, confidence, and support system to develop better strategies, meet my health goals, and cultivate a better lifestyle. - R.C.
The combination of classes, coaching, and peer support groups is very effective. I found it to be hugely effective at getting me to change my habits and plan my daily schedule. Big changes are easiest made through a large number of tiny, easy changes, and I found that going through this program nudged me into doing those slowly and consistently. I'm very happy I did. - A.G.
Being a South Asian, prior to joining the program offered by South Asian Heart Center, it was really hard and confusing to try and manage my diabetes with regular coaches and online material. Additionally, the counselors are empathetic, gentle, and firm in guiding me. The net result has been my weight reducing from 200 lbs. to 175 lbs. and my A1C reducing from 9.2 to 6.1! - V.A.
