National Diabetes Prevention Program
The National Diabetes Prevention Program, National DPP, was created in 2010 to address the increasing burden of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes in the United States. Congress authorized CDC to establish the National DPP, a public-private partnership working to build a nationwide delivery system for a lifestyle change program proven to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes in adults with prediabetes.
Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center, a key partner of the J, offers the National DPP. Please click here for more information.
Participants of the National DPP at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center receive a one-month free guest pass at the J Fitness and Aquatics Center.
An in-person introductory session will be held at the J during our Wellness Fair, September 18th, 2022, 11 AM – 12 PM. Please email Pamella Bitner at [email protected] or call 973-530-3994 for more information or to register. Non-members welcome.
