The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP)

The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) is a joint program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health and more than 200 partners working together to improve the treatment and outcomes of diabetes in individuals, families, communities and health care systems. 

The NDEP uses public awareness and educational tools to inform people with diabetes about the importance of knowing their blood glucose values, reaching their blood glucose goals and keeping their blood glucose under control. The NDEP also provides messages and tools to help those at risk for type 2 diabetes make the lifestyle changes that may prevent or delay the development of diabetes. 

The NDEP also has diabetes education resources and tools designed especially for health care professionals, business professionals engaged in planning and conduction business health strategies and school personnel.  Whether in clinical practice, classroom, or workplace, managing diabetes effectively is complex and requires a team approach.  Click on the pictures below to take advantage of NDEP resources and tools based on the latest scientific research.
