The California Medical Association (CMA) has partnered with the American Medical Association (AMA) to raise awareness of prediabetes resources, help providers connect their patients to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-recognized Diabetes Prevention Programs, and allow patients to take charge of their health.
AMA and the CDC have also designed a toolkit to help identify and refer patients in physician practices. Visit Prevent Diabetes STAT to download the toolkit, which includes algorithms, patient handouts and referral forms.
