Building Capacity of Providers to Address Prediabetes Among Disparate Populations

Over the past three years, ACPM has raised the awareness of prediabetes as a serious health condition among providers and health care professionals and built the capacity of these providers to screen, test and refer their patients with prediabetes to a CDC-recognized National DPP Lifestyle Change Program. ACPM has received a grant from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Diabetes Translation to collaborate with the American Medical Association and the Black Women's Health Imperative to enhance support for physicians to screen, test and refer (S/T/R) high-risk individuals within African American communities to CDC-recognized National DPP Lifestyle Change Program and strengthen community support to improve and retain enrollment of these participants.
