The National Diabetes Prevention Program is a public private partnership with the CDC. It has coordinated best practices. We have selected the Pre-diabetes Risk Test, because it measures a key behavior directly (physical activity) and two behaviors indirectly (weight is related to eating habits and high blood pressure is related to smoking.) These 3 behaviors contribute to the 4 chronic diseases causing more than 50% of deaths in the County.
The risk test will collect data like the other instruments, prior to going “live”.
