Curriculum from CDC Website for the National Diabetes Prevention Program

The content of the I CAN Prevent Diabetes Program is based on the National Diabetes Prevention Program and the Lifestyle Intervention curriculum.

The complete Lifestyle Intervention curriculum for 16 weekly core sessions, 15 options for monthly post-core sessions and other resources and tools can be found at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Diabetes Translation enhanced website for the National Diabetes Prevention Program.

For example, CDC has developed a widget that can appear on your organization’s website or blog that can serve as a screening tool for prediabetes. In addition to raising awareness, the widget can be used as a first step towards referring individuals to Lifestyle Intervention programs in your area. Find the prediabetes screening widget here and click “share” to find out how to add the widget to your website. The website also has a video that you might use to recruit patients with prediabetes for your program.
