After 5 years, the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) Navigator service will be coming to an end on March 31, 2024.

The DPP Navigator office will be reaching out to all physicians who have utilized the DPP navigator to connect them to local and state-wide DPPs where they can directly send referrals going forward.

DPP services are still available to patients who have prediabetes or who are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Please visit to find a program near you. Referrals can now be sent directly to DPP sites listed on the website.

What stays the same?

DiabetesFreeNC and the NC DPP Lifestyle Coach Network will continue to serve the DPP community with resources and networking opportunities.

The website will keep its interactive map showing all active DPPs in the state. If you are a DPP site, check the accuracy of your site information listed on the map. Email Meg Sargent any corrections to be made to your site. DiabetesFreeNC will also continue to house valuable DPP information for sites, lifestyle coaches, and healthcare provider.

The DPP Lifestyle Coach Network will continue to connect DPPs across the state. Quarterly webinars will start up again in February. Technical assistance for DPP sites can also be requested by emailing Meg Sargent.
