NCPA announces sophomore class for DPP program

 ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Community Pharmacists, in collaboration with the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists and OmniSYS, has announced that 30 neighborhood pharmacies have been selected to receive training and financial support to become Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-recognized National Diabetes Prevention Program providers. The National DPP, launched in 2020, is a nationwide effort that created partnerships between public and private organizations to offer evidence-based, cost-effective interventions that help prevent or delay Type 2 diabetes. “Expanded pharmacy offerings show a commitment to the well-being of your patients and your community; they can quite literally change the trajectory of peoples’ health journey,” said Brian Caswell, NCPA president and owner of Wolkar Drug in Baxter Springs, Kan. “It’s great that so many pharmacies are eager to participate in the National Diabetes Prevention Program and make these important lifestyle change services accessible to their patients.”
