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.
