What is NOT ME?

PEBB teamed up with the Diabetes Prevention and Control Alliance (DPCA) to bring members the NOT ME Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). DPP focuses on prediabetes. At this early stage, practical, everyday steps may reverse prediabetes and help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Lifestyle changes are the key.
