About the North Dakota Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP)


The North Dakota Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP) partners with public and private agencies and organizations to:

  • Reduce diabetes-related disease and death rates
  • Prevent type 2 diabetes among North Dakotans at high risk
  • Improve quality of life of all North Dakotans living with diabetes

To achieve these goals, the program supports:

  • Expanded access to and sustainability of the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)
  • Quality improvement efforts for better diabetes care across North Dakota
  • Increased access to quality Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) services
  • Epidemiology and surveillance of diabetes, its complications, and risk factors
  • Evaluation to improve program performance, account for our public health actions and share lessons learned
  • Partnerships and Coordination to share resources, and increase scope and effectiveness of interventions

North Dakota’s DPCP is supported through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) grant project "Improving the Health of Americans Through Prevention and Management of Diabetes and Heart Disease and Stroke (DP18-1815)".
