ACPM will fund 3 health care organizations/practices to develop and implement a protocol for screening, testing, and referring patients with prediabetes to a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program, either through the EHR or by using another non-electronic approach. Award recipients will work with ACPM to document their experiences and lessons learned as case studies to inform and teach others. Proposals are due January 5, 2017.

ACPM and the CDC are hosting three in-person listening sessions to explore the role of providers in implementing the CDC's 6|18 Initiative. If you are involved or interested in preventing or addressing any of the initiative's six priority health conditions—asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, healthcare-associated infections, tobacco, and unintended pregnancies—we want to hear from you! This is a rare opportunity to share your expertise, engage with fellow providers, and be a voice for prevention in your community. Space is limited to 40 participants for the listening sessions to be held in Atlanta, Houston and New York City.
