Event Details

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 CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) lifestyle change programs and Diabetes Self-management Education and Support (DSMES) programs. The event will increase attendees’ awareness about these programs, ways to scale and sustain the National DPP, and ways to increase access and enrollment in DSMES programs in Colorado.  

 

The National DPPis a public/private partnership working collectively to tackle the enormous problem facing our Nation, prediabetes. The National DPP lifestyle change program is an evidence-based program that is centered on building a healthier lifestyle, including making better food choices, becoming more physically active, losing weight and managing stress. Successful completion of the National DPP 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!

 

Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) provides an evidence-based foundation to empower people with diabetes to navigate self-management decisions and activities. DSMES is a cost-effective tool proven to help improve health behaviors and health outcomes for people with diabetes.

 

You were identified as a key stakeholder to attend this event, and your participation is important to us to have a collective impact to reduce the prevalence of type 2 diabetes and complications of diabetes in Colorado. 

 

A subset of stakeholders will develop the framework of a diabetes prevention and management action plan that will be shared with stakeholders critical to the success of preventing and managing diabetes in Colorado, including you.
