Pre-diabetes and diabetes at Emory have profound effects on our employees, their families and the organization. The prevalence of pre-diabetes among Emory employees is estimated to be 28% (CDC Diabetes Prevention Impact Tool), and the prevalence of diabetes is 4.9%. In 2017, the enterprise-wide DPP@Emory Steering Committee was established to implement and scale the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). This presentation will review the strategic planning process, the strategic plan and the implementation and evaluation of pilot programs at six sites. Discussion will include roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders: health science academic units, health care providers, health & wellness staff, employee health services, Wellness Champions and students. Results of the pilot programs and early results of an enterprise-wide implementation will be shared. After completing this session, participants will be able to: (1) Describe the process to establish an effective diabetes prevention strategic planning process, (2) List the components of successful collaboration, and (3) Describe the outcomes of a comprehensive DPP pilot initiative.
