Prevent Diabetes STAT (Screen, Test, Act Today) – In an effort to raise awareness of prediabetes, the CDC and American Medical Association (AMA) have developed a suite of resources, including helpful information and tools for healthcare providers, state and local health departments, patients, employers, insurers, and community organizations to help stakeholders Prevent Diabetes STAT. The website also includes brief videos to inform stakeholders about the National Diabetes Prevention Program (The National DPP), a link to organizations delivering CDC-recognized The National DPP (in-person and virtual) by state, the curriculum for The National DPP and an online screening tool to help people determine their own risk for type 2 diabetes. Visitors are encouraged to take the nationally recognized prediabetes risk test and encourage colleagues, family members and patients to Prevent Diabetes STAT.
