Since 2001, the National Institutes of Health (NIH)–sponsored Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) (PDF, 194 KB) and subsequent other strong research studies have shown that intensive lifestyle interventions and select medications are cost-effective in preventing or delaying type 2 diabetes in adults with prediabetes.
Given the extraordinary burden of diabetes on patients, their families, the medical community, society, and the economy, the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) has prepared this toolkit to provide health care professionals and teams with evidence and resources to identify, counsel, and support patients to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Help NDEP Promote This Toolkit
Use these promotional tools, such as presentation slides (PPT, 4 MB), an overview presentation slide (PPT, 1.68 MB), and an e-newsletter blurb (DOC, 46.9 KB), to help make other health care professionals aware of GAME PLAN for Preventing Type 2 Diabetes: A Toolkit for Health Care Professionals and Teams.
The National Diabetes Education Program thanks the following people for giving their time and expertise for this project. Without their help, GAME PLAN for Preventing Type 2 Diabetes: A Toolkit for Health Care Professionals and Teams would not be possible:
