Today, in communities across the country, young people are living on the streets after running from or being asked to leave homes characterized by abuse, neglect, or parental drug and alcohol abuse. Once on the streets, such youth are at risk of being sexually exploited or abused by adults for pleasure or profit. In addition, such youth may engage in shoplifting, survival sex, or drug dealing in order to provide for their basic needs. Since 1996, SOP has been aiding this population by funding grantees to provide street-based services to runaway, homeless, and street youth who have been subjected to, or are at risk of being subjected to, sexual abuse, prostitution, or sexual exploitation. These services, which are provided in areas where street youth congregate, are designed to assist such youth in making healthy choices regarding where they live and how they behave. **Please feel free to pass this listing along to your colleagues.

Diabetes Prevention Program (dpp)

Diabetes Prevention Program (dpp)

The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) was a major multicenter clinical research study aimed at discovering whether modest weight loss through dietary changes and increased physical activity or treatment with the oral diabetes drug metformin (Glucophage) could prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes in study participants. At the beginning of the DPP, participants were all overweight and had blood glucose, also called blood sugar, levels higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes - a condition called prediabetes. The DPP found that participants who lost a modest amount of weight through dietary changes and increased physical activity sharply reduced their chances of developing diabetes. Taking metformin also reduced risk, although less dramatically. The DPP resolved its research questions earlier than projected and, following the recommendation of an external monitoring board, the study was halted a year early. The researchers published their findings in the February 7, 2002, issue of the New England Journal of Medicine . In the DPP, participants from 27 clinical centers around the United States were randomly divided into different treatment groups. The first group, called the lifestyle intervention group, received intensive training in diet, physical activity, and behavior modification. By eating less fat and fewer calories and exercising for a total of 150 minutes a week, they aimed to lose 7 percent of their body weight and maintain that loss. The second group took 850 mg of metformin twice a day. The third group received placebo pills instead of metformin. The metformin and placebo groups also received information about diet and exercise but no intensive motivational counseling. A fourth group was treated with the drug troglitazone (Rezu Continue reading >>

Congress Urged: Save Evidence-based Diabetes Prevention Program

Congress Urged: Save Evidence-based Diabetes Prevention Program

Congress urged: Save evidence-based diabetes prevention program A coalition committed to stem the rising tide of type 2 diabetes is calling on Congress to preserve a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) program that uses proven and low-cost lifestyle approaches to prevent onset of the disease. In a letter to House and Senate appropriations subcommittee leaders, signed by 17 members of the of the Diabetes Advocacy Alliance (DAA)including the AMAexpresses strong support for $25 million in continued funding for the CDCs National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). The Alliance, since 2010, has worked to create awareness and action on the part of legislators and policymakers to fight the disease that already affects 30 million Americans and costs $322 billion a year. The human and economic toll of this disease is devastating, states the Alliance letter, which underscores the urgency of the problem and points to the National DPP as a program that can help change the trajectory of diabetes in this country. Among those joining the AMA in the funding plea are the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, National Council on Aging, National Kidney Foundation, American Diabetes Association, YMCA of the USA, the Endocrine Society, as well as other nonprofit and corporate signatories. If the incidence of the disease is unchecked, the forecast is that one in three people in this country will have diabetes by 2050. The public-private National DPP focuses its efforts on halting or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes. All told, 86 million Americans are at risk of diabetes and, for many, the onset can happen quickly. Among those with prediabetes, 1530 percent can be expected to progress to type 2 diabetes within five years. The National DPP confronts this public h Continue reading >>

National Diabetes Prevention Program Funding

National Diabetes Prevention Program Funding The Society is a leading advocate for funding for the NDPP, a program that uses lifestyle intervention to prevent or delay the onset of diabetes among individuals with prediabetes. The Society has advocated for increased funding for the program on Capitol Hill and with U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy. With support from the Society, the Chairs of the Congressional Diabetes Caucus (CDC) recently circulated a Dear Colleague letter requesting support for prioritizing funding for the National Institute for Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, the CDCs Division of Diabetes Translation, and the NDPP. The NDPP has demonstrated great success through its expansion to over 794 sites in 39 states, and it could save the country as much as $190 billion if fully expanded. A testament to this success is the launch of an initiative from the CDC and the American Medical Association called, Prevent Diabetes STAT: Screen, Test, ActToday. The initiative intends to raise awareness about prediabetes and increase screening and referral to evidence-based diabetes prevention programs that are a part of the NDPP. Continue reading >>

Medicare To Fund Diabetes Prevention Programs, Burwell Says

Medicare To Fund Diabetes Prevention Programs, Burwell Says

In Focus Blog Published on: March 23, 2016 Medicare to Fund Diabetes Prevention Programs, Burwell Says The move means the nation's largest payer will invest in diabetes prevention, which has been a focus of CDC, the American Medical Association, and the American Diabetes Association. Diabetes prevention programs will be covered by Medicare under a policy change announced today by HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell. The change, first reported by The New York Times , will represent an expansion of the model funded by the CMS Innovation Center, and a statement from HHS said the details of how reimbursement will work will be spelled out in the 2017 Medicare physician fee schedule, to be released this summer. Burwell announced the decision today at a YMCA in the nations capital. YMCA of the USA was the original partner in the $11.8 million demonstration project to enroll Medicare beneficiaries at high risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D) in the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP). This evidence-based initiative has been shown to stop the march of full-blown diabetes in those with elevated blood glucose levels who do not have the disease, a condition known as prediabetes. The demonstration project was funded in 2011 under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which was passed 6 years ago this week. HHS decision to fund the NDPP in Medicare comes a year after CDC, in partnership with the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Diabetes Association, launched a major initiative called Prevent Diabetes STAT, which called on payers and community partners to work with public health officials to identify those with prediabetes and stop onset of T2D. Ann Albright, PhD, RD, CDCs director of the Division of Diabetes Translation, discussed the urgency in Evidence-Based Diabete Continue reading >>

Medicaid Coverage for the National Diabetes Prevention Program Demonstration Project The purpose of this project is to demonstrate how state Medicaid agencies, in collaboration with state health departments, can implement and deliver a sustainable coverage model for the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP). This project is funded through a cooperative agreement awarded to the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT) through the CDC Office of State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support (OSTLTS). On July 1, 2016, NACDD provided funding to state Medicaid agencies in Maryland and Oregon for a two-year demonstration (July 1, 2016 June 30, 2018) to determine how to implement and deliver a sustainable coverage model of the National DPP for Medicaid beneficiaries with prediabetes through managed care organizations (MCO) and accountable care organizations (ACO). NACDD is working with Leavitt Partners, a consulting firm that specializes in healthcare market intelligence and value-based healthcare options, to develop and refine tools to assist states in leveraging opportunities to provide coverage of the National DPP for Medicaid beneficiaries and commercial health plan members. The findings from this demonstration project as well as related market research are informing Leavitt Partners and NACDDs development of an online National DPP Coverage Toolkit to enhance widespread adoption of the program by state Medicaid agencies and commercial health plans. The National DPP Coverage Toolkit was launched 6/22/17: coveragetoolkit.org NACDD is also working with RTI International to evaluate the process for Medicaid coverage and delivery of the National DPP in M Continue reading >>
