The CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program is an evidence-based lifestyle change program for preventing type 2 diabetes.  It is a year-long program which helps participants to make real lifestyle changes such as eating healthier and including physical activity into their lives.  Throughout the year, participants improve problem-solving and coping skills as they work with a trained lifestyle coach and a small group of people who are working to make similar changes.  The main objective of the program is to reduce and individual’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The program includes:

  • Weekly sessions for the first 6 months and monthly sessions for the final 6 months.
  • Participants will track their food and activity intake and record it weekly at each session.
  • Participants will learn new ways to shop and prepare healthy food and how to integrate exercise into their daily lives.

  • Individuals who are18 years of age or older.
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of 24 or more.
  • Had a recent blood test or claim code indicating they have prediabetes.
