Resources for Health Care Professionals
Individuals at risk for type 2 diabetes may be more likely to consider a lifestyle change program if their health care professional recommends it. In addition, the recognition program requires that at least 50% of participants be diagnosed with prediabetes through blood testing (or have a history of gestational diabetes); this is often done by a health care professional.
The new PreventT2 curriculum comes with ready-to-use, and adaptable promotional materials that can be easily modified to add your organization logo and contact information.
CDC provides resources for encouraging health care professionals to refer at-risk patients to your lifestyle change program. These resources will help you educate health care professionals about the program and offer them tools for easy referrals.
