As we know….it “takes a village” to address the epidemic of diabetes. Did you know that there is a collection of resources for pharmacists and their teams to not only increase awareness of the NDPP, but to also become part of the NDPP Lifestyle Coach team?
According to the NDPP Customer Service Center:
How Pharmacists Can Get Involved in the National DPP:
“The National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP), led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), supports a proven lifestyle change program to help at-risk adults reduce their likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes. Pharmacists are in a unique position to support their patients in preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes. CDC has developed several resources to help you determine the best role for you. Whether you’re a pharmacist, part of the pharmacy workforce, or working with pharmacy groups, you can get involved by promoting awareness of prediabetes and the National DPP; screening and testing patients for prediabetes and referring those eligible to a CDC-recognized organization offering the National DPP lifestyle change program; and/or applying for CDC recognition to offer the program in your pharmacy.”
