Diabetes prevention program receives CDC recognition, now accepts Medicare - College of Health and Human Sciences

The NDPP, offered by the Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center (KRNC) in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, has been striving to receive the CDC recognition ever since the program launched four years ago.

“Having a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program means that we are consistently meeting criteria that demonstrates our program is highly effective for reversing prediabetes,” says Shelby Cox, interim director of the KRNC. “We plan to leverage this victory and expand our program offerings so we can extend our reach in our community.”

Body weight reduction

Cox explained that one achievement that secured recognition for the program was consistently demonstrating that participants achieved at least a 5 percent reduction in their body weight. There have been 10 cohorts of participants in KRNC’s NDPP over the past four years.

Cox said about 30 programs in the state offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program, and only about a dozen have received this level of CDC recognition.
