New National Diabetes Prevention Program Curriculum and Resources
CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) is happy to release the newPreventT2 curriculum- in both English and in Spanish. New supporting PreventT2 promotional materials, participant videos, and web content can also be found on the website.
The new PreventT2 curriculum, launched in March 2016, is based on the original 2002 Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) trial and follow-up studies for the prevention of type 2 diabetes (T2). This new curriculum still promotes modest weight loss (5%-7% of current weight if overweight or obese) and increased physical activity through a 12-month lifestyle change program. The curriculum also reflects new literature on self-efficacy, physical activity, and diet.
CDC wanted to provide an additional approved curriculum at no cost to increase the number of organizations offering the lifestyle change programs. The original CDC curriculum is still valid, as are other curricula that have been approved by the CDC’s Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP).
