CDC picks APhA Foundation to put diabetes prevention program in pharmacies – APhA submits compounding comments to FDA. – (866) 348-2889
CDC has selected the APhA Foundation, in partnership with the Kroger Co. and Solera Health, to build infrastructure within community pharmacies to expand access to an innovative evidence-based lifestyle change program designed to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes among adults with prediabetes.
Called Project IMPACT: Diabetes Prevention, the program will deliver the CDC-recognized National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) curriculum to at least 7,500 at-risk adults in underserved communities in the United States over the next 5 years.
Pharmacists, dietitians, and technicians at Kroger pharmacy locations will be trained to deliver the National DPP curriculum, and Solera Health—a preventive care benefits manager—will support community outreach efforts with its technology platform. The program’s hybrid model of care will combine face-to-face, telehealth, and digital technology solutions so that providers can tailor the program to the participants and help them successfully complete the program.
