About NDEP Stakeholder Groups

The purpose of NDEP Stakeholder Groups is to ensure that the voices, needs, and priorities of high-risk populations and/or major stakeholder groups are heard and addressed in NDEP’s plans and initiatives. A Stakeholder Group is made up of people who share a common interest in addressing diabetes prevention and control in a specific audience or population, and in using NDEP resources to facilitate health communication and health promotion addressing the needs of these populations.

 

This page contains a brief description of the current stakeholder groups and information about where to go to learn more.
