NYAIL is partnering with the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) to expand the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) to New Yorkers with disabilities. NACDD is one of 10 national organizations that has received funding from the Center for Disease Control to expand the DPP program to underserved areas and priority populations.

As NACDD’s state partner in New York, NYAIL subcontracts with three ILCs to offer the DPP program to people with disabilities in six counties identified as being underserved by DPP: 

Putnam and Dutchess County through Westchester Independent Living Center / Putnam Independent Living Services
Greene and Rensselaer County through Independent Living Center of the Hudson Valley
Fulton and Montgomery County through Resource Center for Independent Living

Each center has a trained Lifestyle Coach on staff that is offering the program throughout their local community using the “Prevent T2 for All” inclusive curricula. Please contact your local ILC for details on availability and how to enroll.
