About the National Diabetes Prevention Program
The National Diabetes Prevention Program is a partnership of public and private organizations working together to reduce the growing problem of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
In 2001, the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control proved that, for a person with prediabetes, losing a modest amount of weight through dietary changes and increase physical activity could dramatically reduce their risk of developing diabetes.
Today, over a thousand organizations across the country use the building blocks from that study: 16-week curriculum, personal health coach, small group of participants for support, helping people with prediabetes lose weight by adopting healthy habits, and reducing their risk of developing diabetes
