Diabetes Prevention Program
AADE’s Diabetes Prevention Program
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 79 million adults in the U.S. (one in three) have prediabetes. The National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) brings an evidence-based Lifestyle Change Program for preventing type 2 diabetes to local communities.
In 2012, CDC selected AADE as one of 6 partner organizations to assist in expanding the reach of the National DPP. This is an exciting opportunity because it highlights the leadership role that diabetes educators can play in diabetes prevention efforts. An overarching goal of this project is to make the Lifestyle Change Program a covered healthcare benefit for people with prediabetes.
In mapping out AADE’s DPP, 12 target states were chosen: Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia. As of December 14th, 2012, the funding opportunity announcement for the DPP was posted in MYAADE NETWORK on the 12 target states CBs and 10 COIs. Emails about the funding opportunity were sent to DEAP program coordinators for 184 programs in the 12 the target states. Emails also went to eligible subscribers (total 4,730) in all 22 groups from MY AADE NETWORK.
AADE had a tremendous response to our RFPs and received applications from all over the country. All filled out the Site Readiness Assessment Application and submitted them to AADE by the January 31, 2013 deadline. The applications were evaluated with a focus on current capacity and future prospective as it aligned with the goals of the National DPP.
We are grateful for the all inquiries and grant submissions. AADE appreciates your support and efforts in the realm of diabetes prevention!
