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.
Organizations considering whether to apply should read the DPRP Standards thoroughly and should conduct a capacity assessment (described in Appendix A of the standards and available on this page) before actually applying for recognition. For more information, please contact dprpAsk@cdc.gov.
