The National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) was created to address the increasing burden of type 2 diabetes. The Program focuses on behavior changes related to healthy eating and physical activity. Research has shown that its participants can reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% (71% for people over 60 years of age). We established the Philadelphia Diabetes Prevention Collaborative (PDPC), a group of local stakeholders working to design multi-pronged public health efforts to prevent Type2 Diabetes and enroll 2000 participants in 2020.
