You know the stats.

1 in 3 people are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. You also know that minimal weight loss of 5-7% reaps huge health benefits. The DPP reduces risk for developing type 2 diabetes by 58%. And for people over age 60, DPP has shown to reduce risk by 71%.

Your patients are 15 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes if they do nothing, than if they take the DPP class. They are looking to you for health information they can trust. Empower your patients to take charge of their health and learn how to make realistic and achievable lifestyle changes. Refer your patients to DPP where they can learn skills to problem solve, reduce stress, manage weight, and increase exercise.
