Since the fall of 2012, AADE has been working as a grantee of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to increase access to and utilization of the National Diabetes Prevention Program and make participation in the program a reimbursable benefit. The National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is an evidence-based lifestyle change program which has been demonstrated to delay or prevent the development of type 2 diabetes among people at high risk. CDC funding was awarded to six organizations, all to help CDC reach the large number of people with prediabetes (those at high-risk for type 2 diabetes) by expanding the National DPP network or organization offering the program.
