Ensure equitable access to evidence-based diabetes prevention programs in all modalities (in-person, asynchronous, and synchronous/video)

  • Support ongoing funding of the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program and address barriers to success
  • Address barriers to the success of CMS Innovation Center’s Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program expanded model test
  • Address social determinants of health
  • Advocate for coverage of Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) for people with prediabetes and obesity
  • Educate about access to the full continuum of care to treat obesity as another tool to address diabetes prevention
