CHEER works with community partners to implement CDC-recognized National Diabetes Prevention Programs (DPP). The National DPP is a lifestyle change program that can reduce a person’s risk for developing type 2 diabetes by 50%.
To find out more about the National DPP, please visit the CDC’s website.

Blackfeet diabetes prevention program (dpp)
The Blackfeet Diabetes Prevention Program is run by the Southern Peigan Health Center and funded by the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders Council’s, Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country. CHEER provided intensive on-the-ground technical assistance to the trained lifestyle coaches, billing department, and program leadership in Blackfeet to launch this program and ensure that they had a solid programmatic foundation to change lives through their work.
On July 1, 2017, the Blackfeet DPP received pending CDC recognition status. The first year-long class began with its first group of participants in September 2017. Full recognition status is expected by July 2019.
