PLAN has joined forces with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Ephesus SDA Church to provide the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) in Harlem to help stem the tide of type 2 diabetes sweeping the community and address the disparity of health in underserved communities nationwide.
Before developing type 2 diabetes, most people have prediabetes; their blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough yet for a diabetes diagnosis. Prediabetes is really common—more than 84 million US adults have it, though 90% of them don’t know they do. The good news is that prediabetes can be reversed.
