In 2017, CDC awarded AADE with our latest 5-year cooperative agreement (CDC-DP17-1705) to activate the National DPP within underserved communities with little or no access to CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs. Working in cities and rural communities, we’ve engaged priority populations—Latinos, African Americans, Medicare beneficiaries, men, and others—who are underutilizing the National Diabetes Prevention Program.
This work isn’t easy, and we know we can’t do it alone. That’s why AADE is partnering with UnidosUS and the National Center for Farmworker Health to engage Latinos, teaming up with the Healthy Truckers Association of America and Omada Health to reach over-the-road truck drivers, and working with 15 local affiliate sites to start lifestyle change programs within their communities:
