This online toolkit was developed to provide information about the mechanics of covering the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) lifestyle change program, which is a year-long, evidence-based intervention program developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). People with prediabetes who take part in this structured lifestyle change program can reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 58% (71% for people over 60 years old).

CDC, NACDD, and Leavitt Partners extend our gratitude to all those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 is impacting the world in unprecedented ways and those with chronic conditions, including diabetes, are more likely to become seriously ill from the virus. Chronic disease prevention activities are more important than ever to protect the health and well-being of individuals and communities.

NACDD and Gardner Policy Institute recently released a report that presents a review of the emerging literature regarding the connection between type 2 diabetes and COVID-19. The report uses state examples to visually illustrate the association between COVID-19 severity, the prevalence of adults living with diabetes, socioeconomic status, social vulnerability, and race and ethnicity. The interconnectedness of these factors points to the need to address public health and chronic disease prevention in a comprehensive, multifaceted way. Read the full report here.
