NDEP Releases GAME PLAN Diabetes Prevention Toolkit


The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP), a joint program of NIDDK and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recently released a toolkit for health care providers as part of its Small Steps. Big Rewards. Prevent type 2 Diabetes
campaign. Your GAME PLAN Toolkit for Preventing Type 2 Diabetes arms health care providers with information on identifying and treating patients with pre-diabetes. It also includes patient materials designed to help them reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Photo of the cover of the GAME PLAN ToolkitThe toolkit includes a “how to” guide for providers with suggestions for helping patients begin and maintain healthier habits, a question and answer section about diabetes prevention strategies, and a GAME PLAN office poster. Patient materials include an information brochure about diabetes and pre-diabetes, a GAME PLAN booklet to help patients set goals and track progress, a Food and Activity Tracker, a Fat and Calorie Counter, and a brochure on starting a walking program.

The Small Steps. Big Reward. Prevent type 2 Diabetes campaign is designed to increase awareness among health care providers and people at risk for type 2 diabetes that the disease can be prevented or delayed through increased physical activity and a modest weight loss of 5 to 7 percent of body weight. The campaign will deliver its message through mass media, community channels, and the Internet.

The GAME PLAN is free and can be downloaded from
