Diabetes program receives full recognition

Diabetes program receives full recognition

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program recently awarded King's Daughters with full recognition as providers of the National Diabetes Prevention Program. The DPRP recognizes programs that have shown that they can effectively deliver a proven lifestyle change program to prevent type 2 diabetes.

The national registry of recognized diabetes prevention programs lists contact information for type 2 diabetes prevention programs in communities across the U.S. Programs with pending recognition have agreed to use an evidence-based curriculum that meets the duration, intensity and reporting requirements in the DPRP standards.Full recognition means that a program has demonstrated effectiveness by achieving all of the performance criteria.

Only two other hospitals in Kentucky received full recognition: KentuckyOne Health (formerly Saint Joseph Hospital) and Baptist Health Lexington. To learn more, click here.
