In partnership with the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), with funding from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, GPBCH has issued a new report, Implementing the National Diabetes Prevention Program. The report spotlights six organizations' efforts to implement the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), an evidence-based lifestyle change program demonstrated to markedly reduce weight and prevent onset of diabetes for high-risk individuals. The studied organizations included four employers - VWR, Christiana Care, Latham & Watkins, and the NY Office of Labor Relations -- as well as GPBCH's efforts as a business coalition on health and Healthfirst's efforts as a NY-based health plan. In addition to the individual case studies, the report includes recommendations for employers, derived from the studied organizations, on how best to implement the DPP.
