Eight states addressed strategies to prevent type 2 diabetes in a year-long project. In 2013, NACDD, in collaboration with the CDC Division of Diabetes Translation, created the State Diabetes Prevention Project. The goal of this project was to engage eight state health departments in statewide or regional efforts to promote increased use of the National Diabetes Prevention Program's (NDPP) evidence-based lifestyle change program. Each funded state selected three to four strategic focus areas to increase awareness, referrals, and access to the evidence-based lifestyle change program.
