In 2017, CDC awarded ADCES with our latest 5-year cooperative agreement (CDC-DP17-1705) to activate the National DPP in communities with little or no access to CDC-recognized programs. Our goal is to enroll at least 5000 participants within in-person, tele-health, or online programs before September 2022. Working with our national partners, state and local departments of health, virtual DPP providers, and community affiliate sites, we will:
- Increase the availability of CDC-recognized diabetes prevention programs in underserved areas
- Increase clinician screening, detection, and referral of adults with prediabetes, or at high risk for type 2 diabetes, to CDC-recognized diabetes prevention programs
- Increase awareness of prediabetes and drive enrollment in the lifestyle change program
- Increase retention rates for participants in the lifestyle change program
- Increase benefit coverage for participation in the lifestyle change program
