National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP)
"National Diabetes Prevention Program [...] is a partnership of public and private organizations working to reduce the growing problem of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
The partners work to make it easier for people with prediabetes to participate in evidence-based, affordable, and high-quality lifestyle change programs to reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes and improve their overall health.
Through the National DPP, partner organizations:
Deliver CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs nationwide
Ensure quality and adherence to proven standards
Train community organizations that can run the lifestyle change program effectively
Increase referrals to and participation in CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs
Increase coverage by employers and public and private insurers
A key part of the National DPP is the lifestyle change program to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Hundreds of in-person and online lifestyle change programs nationwide teach participants to make lasting lifestyle changes, like eating healthier, adding physical activity into their daily routine, and improving coping skills.
To ensure high quality, CDC recognizes lifestyle change programs that meet certain standards and show they can achieve results. These standards include following an approved curriculum, facilitation by a trained lifestyle coach, and submitting data each year to show that the program is having an impact."

"Diabetes self-management education (DSME) is a critical element of care for all people with diabetes and those at risk for developing the disease. It is necessary in order to prevent or delay the complications of diabetes and has elements related to lifestyle changes that are also essential for individuals with prediabetes as part of efforts to prevent the disease. The National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education are designed to define quality DSME and support and to assist diabetes educators in providing evidence-based education and self-management support. The Standards are applicable to educators in solo practice as well as those in large multicenter programs—and everyone in between. There are many good models for the provision of diabetes education and support. The Standards do not endorse any one approach, but rather seek to delineate the commonalities among effective and excellent self-management education strategies. These are the standards used in the field for recognition and accreditation. They also serve as a guide for nonaccredited and nonrecognized providers and programs."
