BuenaVida is an educational-based, behavioral therapy, diabetes prevention program in partnership with the CDC Diabetes Prevention Program. We firmly believe that when our clients are more educated about nutrition and health, they are more likely to make healthier decisions for themselves and their families. Education and self-monitoring are two key components of our program. BuenaVida requires our clients to commit themselves to the program for one full year to prevent disease and promote health.
