The CDC Full Plus Recognition sets a new standard for digital health solutions providing metabolic health, chronic disease prevention, and weight loss solutions

NEW YORK – March 5, 2024 – Noom, the leading digital healthcare company committed to chronic disease prevention and empowering people to live better and healthier lives, announced today that it has earned the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) highest honor, known as Full Plus Recognition for Noom’s Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). Noom’s DPP is now one of only 11 digital programs nationwide to receive this esteemed designation, highlighting its commitment to delivering high-impact, sustainable solutions for diabetes prevention.

Noom’s retention and outcomes programs met stringent criteria in order to attain CDC Full Plus Recognition. Noom’s achievement signifies that at least 60% of all users who complete its Diabetes Prevention Program achieve one of the three clinically significant outcomes that helps reduce the incidence of diabetes: 

  • Body weight loss of 5% or more
  • Body weight loss of 4% plus an addition of 150 minutes of average physical activity per week
  • A 0.2% reduction in A1C 

At least 30% of participants must also complete ten months of the program, demonstrating Noom’s ability to deliver results and sustainable engagement.

“Our team is thrilled to have reached this milestone, becoming the first digital DPP among our competitors to earn the CDC’s extended 5-year Full Plus Recognition,” said Geoff Cook, Noom CEO. “This is truly a testament to the effectiveness of our personalized approach, combining content, community, and coaching to empower individuals to make lasting lifestyle changes that help reduce the incidence of one of the fastest-growing and most expensive chronic diseases worldwide.”

“Our team is passionate about preventing chronic disease at scale using high-quality, evidence-based practices,” added Diana Gallo, Noom’s DPP Director. “Diabetes is costly– it’s recommended that adults spend around 4 hours managing this disease daily and 1 in 7 healthcare dollars is spent on diabetes. Earning Full Plus recognition is an incredible honor. I am overjoyed to share in this success, particularly with our top-notch coaching team who serve our participants’ needs with passion and care each day.”

Diabetes is an emerging public health crisis, with 1 in 3 American adults affected by prediabetes, and a staggering 80% unaware of their condition. Noom’s DPP is uniquely poised to address this widespread issue by offering organizations and individuals a solution to self-identify and engage in the highest quality standard in diabetes prevention, now endorsed by the CDC.

Noom’s DPP features the latest in diabetes prevention science and is effective, engaging, and fun, focusing on empowering members with personalized support that leads to sustainable results. By understanding the “why” behind their habits, individuals experience a lightbulb moment that propels them towards healthier choices and long-term success. All DPP participants are also supported by a highly skilled one-on-one DPP Lifestyle Coach as well as a peer-supported group.
