New National Diabetes Prevention Program RFA

RFA Release: March 21, 2019
RFA Due Date: April 26, 2019
Project Period: June 1, 2019 – May 31, 2020
Anticipated Award Amount: $15,000 per organization
For any questions or technical assistance contact Kayla Magee, SD DOH Diabetes Program Coordinator. Applications are due via electronic submission to Kayla Magee Friday, April 26th by 5 pm CST. (Kayla.Magee@state.sd.us or (605)773-2981).

The National Diabetes Prevention Program: The National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) is a partnership of public and private organizations working together to build a nationwide delivery system for a lifestyle change program proven to prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes in adults with prediabetes. A key component of the National DPP is a structured, evidence-based, year-long lifestyle change program to prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes in adults with prediabetes or at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The National DPP lifestyle change program is founded on the science of the Diabetes Prevention Program research study, and subsequent translation studies, which showed that making realistic behavior changes helped people with prediabetes lose 5% to 7% of their body weight and reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% (71% for people over 60 years old). The program is group-based, facilitated by a trained lifestyle coach, and uses a CDC-approved curriculum. The curriculum supports regular interaction between the lifestyle coach and participants; builds peer support; and focuses on behavior modification through healthy eating, increasing physical activity, and managing stress. The program may be delivered in-person, online, via distance learning, or through a combination of these delivery modes.

“A Change for Life” Video: Click here to watch this video where experts and people with prediabetes talk about how type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed by making lifestyle changes that include weight loss and increased physical activity. People with prediabetes discuss how group lifestyle change classes helped them learn and keep healthy habits.
