Viridian Releases New Whitepaper "The National Diabetes Prevention Program: An Evidence-based Program for Employers, Providers, Health Plans and Community Groups to Bend the Trend"

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - December 04, 2013) - Viridian Health Management, a value-driven health improvement company focused on powering performance in population health, today announced the release of a new whitepaper authored by Robert Eric Dinenberg, MD, MPH, chief medical officer of Viridian Health Management.

This whitepaper, entitled "The National Diabetes Prevention Program: An Evidence-based Program for Employers, Providers, Health Plans and Community Groups to Bend the Trend" was released following the webinar of the same name. In this whitepaper, Dinenberg discusses:

  • The failure of the traditional solution for diabetes prevention
  • The rise of the National Diabetes Prevention Program and broad access to evidence-based diabetes prevention
  • Viridian's role as a recognized program partner for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Diabetes Prevention Program
  • My Weigh 2 Prevent Diabetes, Viridian's brand of the National Diabetes Prevention Program that follows the National Diabetes Prevention Program curriculum
  • Viridian's flexible approach to implementing the National Diabetes Prevention Program that includes training, coaching and technology solutions designed to power organizations to deliver the program and support leadership in diabetes prevention

"The CDC's evidence-based National Diabetes Prevention Program holds great promise for creating a coordinated nationwide approach to diabetes prevention -- one of our most pressing health challenges," said Viridian's Chief Medical Officer Robert Eric Dinenberg, MD, MPH. "Employers, health plans, physician groups and hospitals are well positioned to take a leading role in scaling and implementing the National Diabetes Prevention Program within their populations. When we work together to implement the National Diabetes Prevention Program across the country, we effectively power a national strategy to tackle one of our great health challenges."

This new whitepaper, "The National Diabetes Prevention Program: An Evidence-based Program for Employers, Providers, Health Plans and Community Groups to Bend the Trend" can be accessed on Viridian's website at: http://www.viridianhealth.com/white-papers.
