Scaling the National DPP in Underserved Areas

Reaching Underserved Populations as a 1705 National Organization​

NACDD is one of 10 recipients of the cooperative agreement CDC DP17-1705 – Scaling the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) in Underserved Areas. This five-year project implements five strategies across multiple states and focuses on ‘priority populations’ such as people with disabilities, Medicare beneficiaries, and the general public who have prediabetes. The five strategies are

  1. Increase new CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs, 
  2. Increase referrals lifestyle change programs by health system partners, 
  3. Market the lifestyle change programs to drive enrollment, 
  4. Retain participants into lifestyle change programs, and 
  5. Reimburse for lifestyle change programs by public and private payers and employers and supporting Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program suppliers.
