AADE Diabetes Prevention Program

A Model of Care That Works


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 86 million adults (one in three) in the U.S. have prediabetes. The 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 six partner organizations to assist in expanding the reach of the National DPP. An overarching goal of this project is to make the Lifestyle Change Program a covered healthcare benefit for people with prediabetes.

AADE is currently funding a total of 46 AADE-accredited and/or ADA-recognized DSME sites in 17 states to implement the National DPP.
