Prevention and Management of Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke: State Awards

CDC supports all 50 states and the District of Columbia in their efforts to address the serious national health problems of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. CDC supports state efforts to:

  • Prevent or delay development of type 2 diabetes in people at high risk and improve the health of people living with diabetes.
  • Prevent and manage cardiovascular disease.

In September 2018, state health departments were awarded funds under a new 5-year cooperative agreement. With CDC support, state health departments will conduct activities in the following areas:

Type 2 Diabetes Prevention

  • Increase access to, coverage for, and enrollment and retention of people with prediabetes in the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) lifestyle change program.
  • Work with health care organizations to identify people with prediabetes and refer them to CDC-recognized organizations offering the National DPP lifestyle change program.

Diabetes Management

  • Increase access to, coverage for, and participation of people with diabetes in diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES) programs recognized by the American Diabetes Association or accredited by the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists.
  • Increase the number of pharmacists who provide DSMES and help people with diabetes manage their medications.

Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Management

  • Increase reporting and tracking of clinical data to improve identification, management, and treatment of patients with high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol.
  • Encourage providers to follow evidence-based guidelines and policies for team-based care of patients with high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol.
  • Increase community-clinical links that support systematic referrals, self-management, and lifestyle change for patients with high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol.
  • Help patients continue taking their medicine for high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol.
  • Help patients with high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol manage their conditions.
  • Encourage more patients with high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol to join proven lifestyle change programs.
