if you believe you are a good candidate for the Diabetes Prevention Program or if your physician has recommended that you start a lifestyle change program.
The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a one-year lifestyle change program designed for adults who have prediabetes or are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Through a collaboration with the University of California Office of the President/UC Health, and the Healthy Campus Initiative, DPP is offered for UC Berkeley staff, faculty, students, and spouses.
During the year-long program, a small group of participants and their lifestyle coach meet in a virtual distance learning setting once a week for the first three months, biweekly for month four (every other week), and once a month for the remainder of the program. The group sessions create a space for participants to discuss barriers and to find solutions together. DPP uses a CDC approved curriculum which includes basic information on nutrition, ways to increase physical activity, stress management techniques, and ideas to stay motivated.
