Diabetes Prevention Programs

An estimated 96 million US adults—greater than 1 in 3 adults in the US— and 34.1% of the adult population in Pennsylvania have prediabetes. With prediabetes, blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as diabetes. People with prediabetes are at high risk for type 2 diabetes (the most common type of diabetes), heart disease, and stroke.

Type 2 diabetes can usually be delayed or prevented with health behavior changes. A 5 to 7 percent of weight loss can lead to diabetes prevention.  The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is an evidence-based year-long lifestyle change program to help participants at risk for type 2 diabetes adopt sustainable, healthy lifestyle choices and achieve weight loss. The year-long program, held locally or virtually and facilitated by a trained coach, teaches members how to modify their lifestyle habits through problem-solving and coping techniques.

Class Details

16 one-hour core sessions followed by 6 monthly sessions delivered over the course of the year. Classes are held locally, virtually, or a hybrid model.
