Differences in eligibility criteria and intervention characteristics have limited the generalizability of findings from studies of worksite translations of the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). The objective of our study was to identify factors associated with achievement of the DPP's 5% weight-loss goal in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) Faculty and Staff Health and Wellness DPP from 2014 to 2017.
