The Montana Diabetes Program
is committed to

Reduce diabetes-related disease and death rates, prevent type 2 diabetes among Montanans at high risk, and improve the quality of life among all Montanans with diabetes. The image shows pink, orange, and blue circles behind the text above icons symbolizing health care, lifestyle changes, and people enjoying the outdoors.

To achieve these goals, the program supports the following activities:

  • Prevention of type 2 diabetes and its complications.
  • Quality Improvement for better diabetes care.
  • Quality Diabetes Education Initiative to increase access to quality diabetes self-management education and support.
  • 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 the scope and effectiveness of interventions.

National Context

State Public Health Actions infographic

The State Public Health Actions (1305) and the Four Domains of Chronic Disease Prevention Infographic shows how we are part of a national effort for chronic disease prevention and health promotion. From 2013 to 2018, the Montana Diabetes Program is implementing a work plan under the State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health (1305) grant funded by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. The objectives of this work plan can only be accomplished through the joint efforts of healthcare leaders, insurers, public health agencies, policy makers, and healthcare organizations serving Montanans, and the engagement of the people of Montana.
