National Diabetes Prevention Program: Lessons Learned for PCAs and Health Centers

 National Diabetes Prevention Program: Lessons Learned for PCAs and Health Centers, October 14 at 1 pm ET

In Fall 2019, the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO) and National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) co-facilitated a national webinar and four-part learning collaborative for health center and Primary Care Association (PCA) stakeholders. These HRSA-sponsored training and technical assistance opportunities provided an overview of the CDC’s evidence-based National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) program to improve access to care and prevent type-2 diabetes through health promotion and lifestyle change programs. The purpose is to increase health awareness of the National DPP program in order to increase access to preventative care for at-risk health center patients. AAPCHO and NNCC cordially invite you to this progress to-date webinar, where we'll have federal updates from our HRSA and CDC leaders as well as highlight lessons learned and diabetes prevention best practices for our health center and PCA colleagues.

Registration for this webinar is now closed.


Learning Objectives:

  • To review key elements of HRSA’s Diabetes Quality Improvement Initiative at health centers and its relationship to the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program.
  • To provide an overview of the Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP) Umbrella Arrangement, in particular, how CDC-recognized organizations can connect to sustainable coverage for the National DPP lifestyle change program.
  • To share lessons learned from the 2019 National DPP Learning Collaborative and how health centers and PCAs can help move the needle on diabetes quality improvement and prevention efforts.

Audience: Health centers, Primary Care Associations (PCAs), Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCN), and organizations interested and/or invested in National DPP programming within the health center program.

This activity is approved for up to 1.5 prescribed credits by AAFP. Certificates will be generated upon completion of the the evaluations.
