The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of funds for notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) DP-23-0020—A Strategic Approach to Advancing Health Equity for Priority Populations with or at Risk for Diabetes.  This NOFO seeks to decrease risk for type 2 diabetes among adults with prediabetes and improve self-care practices, quality of care, and early detection of complications among people with diabetes.
