Diabetes Resources


A website with many resources for public health staff and partners to implement the CDC's 1305 and 1422 cooperative agreements. This landing page links to 3 separate sites:

School Health (resources to support a healthy school environment- Domains 2 & 4)

Health Systems (resources to support health systems interventions - Domain 3)
Community Programs Linked to Clinical Services (resources that support connections between community & clinical sectors to improve population health - Domain 4)

This NACDD website serves as a portal for states and their partners to learn, share, and connect in order to scale and sustain the National Diabetes Prevention Program.

National Diabetes Prevention Program - Diabetes - CDC

Prevent Diabetes STAT - American Medical Association
This website includes information for patients, partners, health care professionals, employers and insurers. Features include the Prevent Diabetes STAT Toolkit on screening, testing and referral and a cost-savings calculator.

AADE Diabetes Prevention Program
The American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) funds 45 AADE-accredited and/or ADA-recognized diabetes self management education sites in 17 states to implement the National DPP.

Epidemiology and Evaluation Collaborative (EEC)
Stay up-to-date on the latest epidemiology and evaluation training and TA resources for 1305 and 1422. EEC is a group of state 1305/1422 epidemiologists and evaluators meeting on the second Wednesday of each month at 2:00pm ET.


Planning Fundamentals

The Planning Fundamentals self-paced, online course
provides a comprehensive overview of the process for developing and implementing a state health plan for chronic disease prevention and control.

Diabetes Council Advocacy Toolbox
The Advocacy Toolbox was developed by the Diabetes Council to provide resources for effective advocacy efforts and practical information to help with planning advocacy programs. Materials and resources can be applied to any chronic disease or policy development initiative.

Diabetes Self-Management Education

Diabetes self-management education (DSME) is the cornerstone of care for people with diabetes. This resource provides information on the definition of DSME, the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support, reimbursement, starting a community-based DSME program, and more.

Working with Health Systems and Health Care Providers to Reduce Diabetes Complications

Too many people with diabetes do not receive recommended care and treatment. This NACDD series of fact sheets can help states and partners make the case for health system and provider practice redesign to improve care related to the four major diabetes complications. Using the Chronic Care Model as the framework, each fact sheet highlights data and research illustrating why change is needed and how change improves care.

Health Equity
NACDD is collaborating with the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities, a national initiative coordinated by the DHHS Office of Minority Health and the CDC to identify ways in which state health department chronic disease programs can better address health disparities and promote health equity through existing programs. Read the findings from the 2015 NACDD Health Equity Assessment here.

Systems Thinking and Dynamic Modeling
The presentation, Making Sense of Systems Dynamic Modeling, is from an April 2011 CDC Division of Diabetes Translation Pre-conference Session in Minneapolis, MN.
