Grant Opportunities

If you would like to explore opportunities for funding to help with your National DPP organization, please contact your local health department National DPP lead. They will let you know of technical support and funding opportunities available in your area.

Telehealth Pilot Project Grant

The 2017 Utah Legislature approved $350,000 in one-time funding to the Department of Health - Family Health and Preparedness for telehealth pilot project/s. An official announcement will be made on or before July 1, 2017 that will outline the application process and timeline for proposal submissions for use of this funding.

The purpose of the Telehealth Pilot Project Grant is to determine how telehealth services can best be used in the state, to determine the best practices and identify the types of health care services for which telehealth services may be most beneficial.

Training Information

Information on lifestyle coach trainings, upcoming webinars and more are in this section.

The Utah Department of Health will list training opportunities and other professional development throughout the year. Check back often!

Lifestyle Coach Training

If your organization needs training for your lifestyle coaches, the national agencies listed on the CDC’s website can help. The training centers have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with CDC to provide training. Some of them can also provide training for Master Trainers, who can, in turn, train lifestyle coaches in their own and partner organizations.

National Training Opportunities

Visit the CDC's website at www.cdc.gov/diabetes/prevention/lifestyle-program/staffing-training.html for an updated list of national training centers for in-person and online training.

Frequently Asked Questions

We've provided a list of some of the most frequently asked questions.

Prediabetes Questions

Prediabetes is a condition people get before they are diagnosed with diabetes. Prediabetes is characterized by blood sugar levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
Only a doctor can determine if you have prediabetes. A simple blood test will determine if you are at risk. Contact your doctor today to learn more. You can find out if you’re at risk for prediabetes by taking the online risk test at www.doihaveprediabetes.org.
If you fall into three or more of the following categories, you may be at risk for prediabetes or diabetes.
  • Blood pressure of 140/90 or higher
  • Above-normal cholesterol levels
  • Inactive lifestyle (exercising less than 2x/week)
  • Family history of diabetes
  • History of gestational diabetes
  • Obesity (BMI ≥ 25 kg/m2)
  • Aged 45 years or older
About 86 million American adults—more than 1 out of 3—have prediabetes.
Yes. It is estimated that 9 out of 10 people with prediabetes do not know they have it. People with prediabetes often don’t have or notice any symptoms. It is important for those at risk to regularly monitor their health with their doctor and seek lifestyle changes to maintain health.
Often there are no symptoms associated with prediabetes. Possible symptoms of prediabetes include unusual thirst, a frequent desire to urinate, blurred vision, or fatigue.
Yes! The good news is that prediabetes can be reversed. The sooner a person is diagnosed and takes action, the more likely they’ll be able to reverse it and prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
When a person has prediabetes, they’re on the path to developing type 2 diabetes, and are also at increased risk for serious health problems such as stroke and heart attack.
There are prediabetes classes available throughout Utah that can help you make healthy lifestyle changes and lower your risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Search for the National Diabetes Prevention Program!

National DPP Questions

Please review the 2015 Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP) Standards Data Submission FAQ (PDF) for answers to many of your questions. DPRP_Data_Webinar_FAQs11-2015.pdf If you have additional questions or comments, please email dprpAsk@cdc.gov
The National DPP prediabetes classes are intended for adults 18 years and older. If your child attends with you, it’s not recommended that they get weighed in or provide any personal information to the lifestyle coach. Data for youth are not sent on to the CDC DPRP.
Any participant who attended their first session in the effective year, is eligible, attended four or more sessions; and in this case, adheres to the weekly session requirement in the first 16 weeks, will be included for analysis. If you have additional questions or comments, please email dprpAsk@cdc.gov.
CDC strongly recommends that delivery organizations schedule make-up sessions on different days than class days so that participants only attend one session per day. Only one session per day per participant will be evaluated by CDC for recognition purposes, so if there are multiple sessions in one day, they won’t all be reflected in your organization’s evaluation. For the convenience of the lifestyle coach and participants, make-up sessions can be held over the phone. In this situation, weight and physical activity minutes can be self-reported. If you have additional questions or comments, please email dprpAsk@cdc.gov.
If your organization has a participant who is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes during the yearlong class, they will need to drop out and seek diabetes self-management education and you wouldn't send their class data to the CDC's recognition program (DPRP).
Yes, some of the HSA companies will allow it, but there are certain steps that need to be followed. Contact your HSA to find out if they allow it, and the guidelines for reimbursement.
