NACDD Report Shows National DPP Collective Impact of 35 States and National Partners

Posted By Administration, Friday, September 21, 2018

To coordinate national efforts to prevent type 2 diabetes, NACDD and CDC worked together to develop an engagement model for State Health Departments to support their expansion of the National Diabetes Prevention Program. Since 2012, with support from CDC’s Division of Diabetes Translation, NACDD has provided customized guidance to 35 states to help them galvanize partners to support and implement a statewide type 2 diabetes prevention plan.

NACDD is pleased to share the National Diabetes Prevention Program, State Engagement Model Collective Impact Report, which focuses on the vision to maximize collective impact by coordinating actions of many multi-sector organizations. NACDD gathered information from State Health Departments, their stakeholders, and national partners to describe efforts to expand the National Diabetes Prevention Program through four areas: 1) Awareness; 2) Availability; 3) Screening, Testing, and Referrals; and 4) Coverage. This report highlights successes, including impressive increases in licensed provider awareness about the National DPP lifestyle change program, organizations obtaining CDC recognition, employers covering the program and more. NACDD continues to apply the NACDD/CDC State Engagement Model and provide technical assistance.
