Wednesday, March 4, 2020 from 8:30AM to 4:00PM (EST)
South Burlington, VT
Leaders from health care, business, payer, government, and community organizations will hear highlights from the national, state and local levels about current efforts to support the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP). The event will increase attendees’ awareness about type 2 diabetes, showcase promising practices in Vermont and generate ideas for scaling and sustaining the National DPP in Vermont.
The National DPP is a public/private partnership working collectively to tackle prediabetes, an enormous problem facing the United States. The National DPP lifestyle change program is an evidence-based program centered on building a healthier lifestyle, through better food choices, becoming more physically active, losing weight, and managing stress. Successful completion of the National DPP lifestyle change program has been shown to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes by nearly 60 percent in adults, and 71 percent in those over 60! Administered by Vermont’s Blueprint for Health, Vermonters with prediabetes or at high risk for type 2 diabetes can access the National DPP lifestyle change program for FREE. Increasing enrollment and retention of Vermonters in this evidence-based program is the targeted outcome of this meeting.
