The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) is pleased to announce that this year’s Diabetes Prevention Summit will be held on Tuesday November 1, 2016 at the Double Tree Hotel in Westborough, MA. The summit will highlight the strategies being enacted throughout the state to address prediabetes and bring the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) to scale. DPP is an evidence-based lifestyle change program that has been proven to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes by nearly 58%.

We are inviting stakeholders from across government agencies, community-based organizations, employers, insurers, health care professionals, academia, and others to come learn, share their experiences, and contribute their expertise.

Following an opening keynote address from Stephanie Gruss, Manager of the Diabetes Prevention and Recognition Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, participants will hear from a number of expert panels detailing the work that is being done to prevent diabetes in the Commonwealth.  The afternoon will include an opportunity for the state Diabetes Prevention Network working groups to report on the progress that has been made and determine future strategies.  These working group sessions are open for all participants to attend.

We look forward to your participation!

Registration is from 7:30am- 8:30am. The program will start promptly at 8:30am.
