Diabetes Prevention Program

The diabetes prevention program is an evidence-based program that helps individuals who are at risk of developing diabetes, reduce or delay the development of diabetes.  

This is a year-long program, where participants learn how to be more active, eat healthier, and lose weight. At the end of the program, participants are expected to lose 5-7% of their body weight and complete 150 minutes of physical activity a week. The program is meant to be a long term because the changes participants make are sustained lifestyle changes.
