Data Reporting
To maintain CDC recognition, lifestyle change programs must submit evaluation data every 6 months. These data include elements such as participant demographics, weights, and physical activity minutes. CDC will provide you with a report after every data submission that outlines your progress toward full recognition. The CDC Recognition Program Standards and Operating Procedures [PDF – 728KB] contain detailed information about data to be gathered and procedures for submission. CDC will send your organization a reminder 4 weeks before data are due.
