Diabetes is a serious disease, affecting millions of Americans and growing at epidemic rates, with one million new cases each year. But, there is good news: Diabetes can be prevented. By losing a modest amount of weight by getting 30 minutes of physical activity 5 days a week and eating healthier, people with pre-diabetes can delay or prevent the onset of the disease. The "Small Steps. Big Rewards. Prevent type 2 Diabetes." campaign, the first-ever national diabetes prevention campaign, spreads this important message of hope to the millions of Americans with pre-diabetes.
To reach those groups at high risk for diabetes, the NDEP has created tailored materials and messages for each high risk audience. Click on the links below to learn more.
