The CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program offers a proven program to help you reverse prediabetes.

There are 22 one-hour sessions during the yearlong National Diabetes Prevention Program. 

You’ll work with a lifestyle coach and a small group of people who are all working to reverse prediabetes. 

You’ll learn about eating healthy food, how to become more active, and how to manage stress. And the good news is the National DPP is offered in-person and online!

This program can help people with prediabetes change their life. People can lower their risk of getting type 2 diabetes by more than half.

Imagine yourself one year from now–you've tackled your prediabetes.
