The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors, 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 (National DPP) 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. View the strategic focus areas.
