Diabetes Prevention Program


The National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is an evidence-based lifestyle change program, structured to cut the risk of type 2 diabetes in half. Research shows that if you have pre-diabetes and lose weight by eating healthy and being more active, you can reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 50%.
