Registry of Recognized Programs
The national registry of recognized diabetes prevention programs lists contact information for programs that offer type 2 diabetes prevention programs in communities across the United States. This registry can be used by health care providers to refer patients to a local program. This registry can also help people who want to make a lifestyle change to prevent type 2 diabetes locate an organization offering the classes.
The organizations listed in this registry have DPRP “pending recognition” status. An organization receives “pending recognition” status when it has agreed to use an evidence-based curriculum, that meets duration, intensity, and reporting requirements described in the DPRP Standards and agrees to provide data reports to DPRP every 6 months. Programs remain in “pending recognition” status for 24 months at which time “full recognition” is awarded to programs that meet the performance requirements described in the DPRP Standards. “Full recognition” means that a program has demonstrated effectiveness by achieving all of the requirements described in the DPRP Standards.
