Diabetes Prevention and Control Program

The mission of the Guam Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP) is to provide policies and activities that will improve the quality and access to diabetes care; improve health care providers’ understanding of diabetes control; promote an integrated approach to care, and foster partnership with community-based organizations in the prevention and control of diabetes.

The Guam DPCP collaborates with community partners and coalitions to promote an integrated and comprehensive approach by conducting education, and awareness and training on diabetes prevention and control.  The Guam DPCP initiatives include planning, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating the U.S. Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT) grant, including providing leadership and technical assistance to the Guam Diabetes Control Coalition (GDCC); the Guam Diabetes Association (GDA); the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP); the Getting Guam Healthy Incentive Program (GGHIP) — Building Healthy Individuals; and the Government of Guam Worksite Wellness Program (WWP).

Other initiatives of the program include collaborating with stakeholders in providing health training annually for health care professionals and the community; providing access to diabetes education and information through outreach, educational resources, and social media platforms; and providing access to healthcare and linkages to nutrition, physical activity, tobacco cessation, and alcohol prevention.
