National Diabetes Prevention Program Webinar Series

As you know, addressing and reducing the burden of prediabetes is a public health priority. 86 million Americans have prediabetes which equals   1 in 3 adults. Research shows that enrolling those with prediabetes into a structured lifestyle change program can reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes by 58%.

ACPM has received funding from the Division of Diabetes Translation within the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to increase the number of physicians who are  screening, testing, and referring patients with prediabetes to a CDC recognized diabetes prevention program (DPP). 

As part of our efforts to promote awareness, screening and referral to the program we are hosting a series of webinars over the next few months. We encourage you to visit to learn more about the program and how you can get involved! 

Scaling the National Diabetes Prevention Program: Health Plan Coverage in California

Monday, March 6 (4:00pm EST): REGISTER 

Tuesday, April 4 (3:00pm EST): REGISTER 

13 million adults in California, or 46 percent, have prediabetes, while another 2.5 million adults, or 9 percent, have already been diagnosed with diabetes. Combined, the two groups represent 15.5 million people — 55 percent of the state’s population. Many health plans across California are responding to this growing number by providing the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) at no cost to their members. 

Join ACPM for a webinar to learn about the coverage provided by Anthem Blue Cross CA and Blue Shield CA - who collectively insure over 10 million people across the state. Solera Health, who administers the National DPP for both plans, will review the current identification and enrollment process and how physicians can get involved in referring their patients. Healthslate, a member of Solera's diverse network of National DPP providers, will discuss their unique approach to care team integration.
