The PreventT2 curriculum is based on the original 2002 DPP trial and follow-up studies. It promotes modest weight loss (5-7%) and increased physical activity through a 12 month lifestyle change program and also reflects new literature on self-efficacy, physical activity, and diet. There are 26 modules. In order to achieve CDC recognition, your program must complete at least 22 of these modules. Please see the chart below for details.

First six months of program
