Fit for Service Wellness Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a lifestyle change program that helps participants lose weight, adopt healthy habits, and reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes. The program meets weekly for 16 weeks, and then monthly for the balance of  the year. Participants learn ways to eat healthier, increase their activity, and manage the challenges that come with lifestyle change.
The goal is for participants to lose 5 to 7% of their weight during the program—which has been proven to dramatically lower their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. While every Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a little bit different, Fit for Service Wellness program includes the following, weekly access to a personal health, coaching sessions, and group support.
