COVID-19 and the National DPP

Organizations that wish to start new cohorts online using the complete HALT platform can also contact John Patton to request a demonstration of the fully integrated online DPP delivery platform that includes photo-food journaling, coach and participant dashboards, branded mobile apps, data collection and reporting, etc.
Why is ProVention Different?
ProVention is a different kind of health foundation because it is solely dedicated to promoting the preventable.
Simply put, we believe that there are many diseases that can be prevented from ever occurring and that prevention is the ultimate answer to our nation's health crisis.
Unfortunately it is difficult for people to prevent things that they don't know exist, such as the coronavirus. If people weren't know about seat belts or bike helmets, they would never wear them. Therefore, prevention starts with health promotion and disease awareness. Marketing and messaging is at the core of our projects and initiatives.
Secondly, we ProVention understands that housing, transportation, education, job creation and food security are integrally linked to health. Therefore conversations need to start by expanding the tent and extending the table to include multi-sector partners. ProVention has access to governmental agencies, national non-profits, healthcare, insurance and private industry partners. Convening stakeholders is a central pillar of its focus.
ProVention now offers a custom-branded online platform for delivery of the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). This platform includes an engaging, CDC approved video curriculum, photo food logging and easy to use coach dashboards as well as data collection tools for participant reporting.
This model involves a single Master License with unlimited sublicensees at no additional cost.
