New NACDD Report Shows National DPP Collective Impact of 30 States and National Partners

NACDD is pleased to release the National DPP State Engagement Model Collective Impact Report and Executive Brief.  To expand the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP), NACDD and CDC collaborated to develop a partner engagement approach called the NACDD/CDC State Engagement Model. The model generates coordinated and collective action among diverse stakeholders. Since 2012, NACDD has customized guidance to help states galvanize partners to support and implement a statewide diabetes prevention plan. NACDD gathered information by soliciting state outcome briefs from 30 State Health Departments that describe efforts to expand the National DPP through the following areas: 1) Awareness, 2) Availability, 3) Screening, Testing, and Referrals, and 4) Coverage.

Highlights follow:

  • 34,355 licensed providers learned about the National DPP lifestyle change program
  • 2,215 lifestyle change coaches were trained in 14 states
  • 679 organizations obtained CDC recognition in 21 states
  • 104 employers in 14 states cover the National DPP lifestyle change program
  • 232 organizations screen for prediabetes in seven states
  • 63,633 individuals enrolled in a CDC-recognized lifestyle change program in 15 states
