Read the Standards for Recognition
The CDC Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program Standards and Operating Procedures (DPRP Standards) describes in detail the National Diabetes Prevention Program requirements for a lifestyle program to prevent type 2 diabetes. It also explains how an organization may apply to have a lifestyle program recognized, earn recognition, and continue to be recognized over time.
Any organization that can deliver the approved diabetes prevention lifestyle classes as spelled out in DPRP Standards may apply for recognition. Organizations considering whether to apply should read DPRP Standards thoroughly and should conduct a capacity assessment (described in Appendix A of the standards and available on this page) before actually applying to the DPRP for recognition. For more information, please contact DPRP.Ask@cdc.gov.
The current Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP) standards, dated September 2, 2011, remain in effect. Please check this site for updates.
