Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)

Are you at risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes? Risk factors include obesity, inactive lifestyle, family history, diagnosis of pre-diabetes or history of gestational diabetes. 

The group-based Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) includes 22 sessions during a 1-year period. Goals are to achieve and maintain a 7% weight loss with healthy eating and an active lifestyle. The program can reduce your chance of developing Type 2 Diabetes by 58% if you’re under age 60 and 71% age 60 and older. 

This program is open and offered at no-cost to UC Davis staff and faculty at this time.
