Find out by taking the test. The Suffolk County Department of Health Services is offering a new, free Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) to all Suffolk County residents at risk. Programs are conveniently located at hospitals, health care centers and libraries.

The program is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach and meets one hour per week for 16 weeks, followed by at least six monthly follow-up sessions.

The sessions cover healthy eating, physical activity, and lifestyle changes to help participants achieve the goals that lead to the prevention or delay of a diabetes diagnosis.

A lifestyle change program offered through the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program can help you make those changes—and make them stick. Through the program, you can lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by as much as 58% (71% if you're over age 60).
