National Context

CDC Chronic Disease In America Infographic

In September 2018, the Montana Diabetes Program, in conjunction with the Cardiovascular Health Program, was awarded funds under a new 5-year cooperated agreement with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Through the Improving the Health of Americans through Prevention and Management of Diabetes and Heart Disease and Stroke CDC-RFA-DP18-1815 grant, the Montana Diabetes Program is implementing a work plan to prevent or delay development of type 2 diabetes in people at high risk and improve the health of people living with diabetes. The Montana Diabetes Program was also awarded a 5-year Innovation Award (1817) to design, test and evaluate innovative approaches to address the risks, complications and barriers of diabetes, heart disease and stroke. The objectives of these grants 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.  Content source: National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
