Diabetes Prevention & Prediabetes


Partner with ADCES to offer large-scale diabetes prevention

Utilize the ADCES Prevention Network's resources and know-how to offer diabetes prevention through your local health departments. Our unparalleled experience offering diabetes prevention, coupled with our first-rate tools, will ensure your success.

Our Experience

As one of the CDC’s original six grantees to test and scale the National Diabetes Prevention Program, we have perfected the art of assisting DPP programs with getting started and remaining successful.

Our model has shown superior results, with ADCES’s DPP programs demonstrating an average percentage weight loss exceeding the CDC’s minimum required 5 percent, and meeting the CDC’s program attendance requirement.  

With relationships at CDC and CMS and membership in multiple prevention-focused coalitions, we are able to quickly detect and adjust to changes in the landscape, and provide you advice and resources that will meet your evolving requirements.

Our Tools

We know that your DPP data collection needs go beyond CDC requirements and the capabilities of an Excel spreadsheet. ADCES has created an easy to use database solution -- Data Analysis of Participants Systems or DAPS® -- with meaningful metrics that give you the ability to analyze, target and market your services:    

  • Unlimited data pulls with multiple view filters for the DPP organizations you oversee, in real time
  • Secure: Cloud based, HIPAA compliant, SSL certified, Password protected
  • Tiered access, allowing organizations and their coaches to separately enter data from any location
  • Additional data elements include: blood values, benefit coverage, physician referral information, demographic and priority population tracking, etc. 
  • Pull de-identified reports to increase marketing, referrals and coverage
  • Real-time tracking against CDC requirements and other criteria

Our Educational Opportunities

Offering the DPP requires you to have trained lifestyle coaches to lead your programs who have the confidence to enable participants to make long-lasting lifestyle changes. ADCES has a five-year track record in supporting lifestyle coaches and offers CDC-approved Lifestyle Coach Training in convenient locations year-round.

We also offer additional educational programs throughout the year, including our popular Building Your Diabetes Prevention Program workshop and our Reimbursement Boot Camp, as well as a wide array of publications and online resources that can enhance your program.

Our Ability to Customize

An annual sponsor subscription is designed for entities that oversee multiple CDC DPRP programs and would like to track their data for reporting purposes and to offer guidance and support to their programs. 

We know that you may have unique needs that require a customized solution. We are ready to work with you to create a package of tools, educational programming and consulting services that will work for you.
