The Cooperative Extension National Diabetes Prevention Program Working Group


The Cooperative Extension National Diabetes Prevention Program Working Group (CE-NDPP) was formed in 2017. We support State Extension services conducting the DPP Lifestyle Change Program, through regular Zoom meetings and webinars. Any Extension organization currently offering, or planning to offer, the DPP Lifestyle Change Program is welcome to join.

CE-NDPP has two goals:

Goal 1:  Strengthen Cooperative Extension capacity to impact diabetes prevalence in the U.S.
Goal 2
:  Increase the number of state Cooperative Extension Services that are recognized by the CDC as DPP providers.

Four Areas of Focus:

  1. Quality support systems
  2. Common evaluation measures
  3. Systems for health insurance claims
  4. Branding and marketing
