Delaware's Diabetes Prevention
and Control Program
The goal of the Delaware Diabetes Prevention and Control Program is to decrease the state’s emotional, physical, and financial burden from diabetes by preventing the disease and reducing its complications.
The program is funded by a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Additional support comes from the Delaware Health Fund, in cooperation with the Delaware Health Care Commission. It collects and publicizes current, accurate information about diabetes, develops approaches for reducing the impact of the disease, promotes lifestyle habits for prevention and control, and coordinates diabetes-related efforts of public and private health organizations.
