Individuals and Communities Acting Now to Prevent Diabetes©
Bringing the National Diabetes Prevention Program to Minnesota
I CAN Prevent Diabetes is a collaborative, community-based, lifestyle change program designed for people with pre-diabetes. The Minnesota Individuals and Communities Acting Now Prevent Diabetes (I CAN PD) offers diabetes prevention education and support for people with pre-diabetes. ICANPD is a marketing term for promoting the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) in Minnesota. It is based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s curriculum and National Diabetes Prevention Recognition standards.
I CAN PD is just one of many NDPP programs in Minnesota. The Minnesota Diabetes Program endorses the availability and accessibility of all NDPP- based programs to all Minnesotans at risk for developing diabetes.
