  • The CDC 6/18 Initiative has information on the evidence for controlling and preventing type 2 diabetes including key health and cost evidence messages for payers and providers.
  • National Diabetes Prevention Program is a partnership of public and private organizations working to reduce the growing problem of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
