National Diabetes Education Program

National Diabetes Education Program is a federally-funded program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and includes over 200 partners at the federal, state and local levels, working together to improve the treatment and outcomes for people with diabetes, promote early diagnosis, and prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.

AADE currently has an MOU to deliver the CDC Approved Lifestyle Coach Training Entity, and we are listed on CDC’s website as a training entity. 

Upon completion of the training, attendees will be designated "Lifestyle Coaches" and will have the confidence to enable their program participants to make lasting lifestyle changes to improve their outcomes. Also, these coaches can educate their fellow community members on how the NDPP can prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Delivered by expert DPP Master Trainers, using the recognized PreventT2 curriculum, here's what to expect:
  • An interactive classroom setting in a small groups format with hands-on practice group facilitation techniques
  • Insight from actual coaches on best practices and real-life examples
  • CE for nurses, dietitians and pharmacists
  • No pre-requisites
Resources Include:
  • National Diabetes Prevention Program Curriculum Overview
  • Lifestyle Coach Facilitation Guide (Core and Post-Core)
  • Coaches Manual and Participant Manual
