Partners & Community Organizations

Who can become an NDEP partner? You can make a difference in diabetes prevention and control by taking an active role in the National Diabetes Education Program. All organizations, associations, and groups that promote NDEP messages and materials are welcome to be NDEP partners. Partners are the key to NDEP’s success and work with NDEP in a variety of ways to identify needs for collaboration and synergistic opportunities for win-win projects and initiatives.

Why become an NDEP partner?

NDEP partners can benefit from using NDEP’s messages, campaigns, and materials. For example, NDEP partners can:

  • Expand their activities and have a greater impact by combining efforts and resources with NDEP and other organizations.
  • Adopt NDEP’s messages and promote them within their organization and to the communities they serve.
  • Adapt and tailor messages for target audiences as appropriate.
  • Disseminate information and materials to media, community organizations, and target audiences.
  • Coordinate education activities and share resources with other partner organizations.
  • Use NDEP resources to modify the health care delivery system to improve quality and access.
  • Join one of NDEP’s Stakeholder Groups. These groups provide partners with a way to share ideas and provide input and guidance to help NDEP continue to respond to the needs of diverse audiences affected by diabetes.

Partner Guidelines

For organizations and companies that share common priorities and interests with NDEP, these guidelines have been established to provide direction for how NDEP partners can adopt and/or adapt NDEP materials and collaborate with NDEP around shared goals and objectives.
