The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a structured and evidence-based program developed specifically to prevent type 2 diabetes. It is free to patients and it has been shown to cut in half the risk of getting diabetes. DPP is designed for people who have pre-diabetes or are at risk for type 2 diabetes, but who do not already have diabetes.
