The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) is working hard to change people's attitudes about diabetes.  A federally funded program sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the NDEP has more than 200 partners at the federal, state, and local levels, all working together to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with diabetes.

As those who live with diabetes know all too well, diabetes affects nearly every area of their lives.  To date, there have been virtually no concerted efforts made to assist people with the array of "non-medical" components that come along with living with diabetes: that is, until now.
