The Pacific Islander Diabetes Prevention Program (PI-DPP) began in 2017 with the goal of improving the health and wellness of Pacific Islander populations in the Continental US, Hawaii, and the US Affiliated Pacific Islands. Our focus is on capacity building, training, and technical assistance to enable organizations to offer lifestyle change programs to their community. We currently partner with 11 organizations to offer PI-DPP to Pacific Islander communities.
