Diabetes Prevention Program Resource Center
Diabetes Prevention: Screen, Test, Refer

ACPM recently began our second year of partnership with the Division of Diabetes Translation at CDC to increase physician awareness, screening and referral to the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP). 

The CDC-led National DPP is a partnership of public/private organizations working collectively to establish, spread, and sustain an evidence-based lifestyle change program for people with prediabetes to prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes. The partners work to make it easier for people with prediabetes to participate in evidence-based, affordable, and high-quality lifestyle change programs to reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes and improve their overall health.

The goal of ACPM's work with CDC is to increase physicians' and health care professionals' awareness of prediabetes as a serious health condition and to increase the number of physicians and health care professionals taking action to screen, test, and refer patients with prediabetes to CDC-recognized diabetes prevention programs (programs with pending or full recognition).

The resource center is provided as a one stop resource to equip physicians and health care professionals planning to increase awareness, screening and referral within their practice. It contains materials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Medical Association, YMCA of the USA, Solera Health and other national partners.
