New Series Takes You Inside CDC's National DPP


CDC’s Division of Diabetes Translation unveiled a new video series designed to increase awareness about the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program’s (National DPP) lifestyle change program.

The new videos, which feature a Lifestyle Coach and people who have successfully completed the lifestyle change program, highlight the benefits of participation and directly address potential barriers, such as the program’s one-year timeframe. Complementary videos focus on specific topics supported by the program’s curriculum, including:



The National DPP was developed in response to the growing rate of diabetes in the U.S. and the millions of U.S. adults (currently 88 million!) living with prediabetes. The National DPP’s lifestyle change program is research-based and focuses on healthy eating and physical activity. Research has shown that people at high risk for type 2 diabetes who take part in a structured lifestyle change program can reduce their risk by 58% (71% for people over 60 years old).
