Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs (DSME)
Outpatient Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs (DSME/S) recognized by the American Diabetes Association or accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Educators meet National Standards for DSME/S.  The programs assure patients and payers that the practice offers quality, comprehensive diabetes education and care, and meet criteria for Medicare Reimbursement.  For more information on applying or receiving technical assistance with the DSME application process contact the Arkansas Department of Health,Chronic Disease Prevention and Control Branch at 501-661-2942.

The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) has created the Small Steps. Big Rewards. Prevent type 2 Diabetes campaign. The NDEP has created campaign messages and materials for people at risk for diabetes, including those at high risk: African Americans, Hispanic and Latino Americans, Native Americans and Alaska Natives, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, women with a history of gestational diabetes and older adults. In addition, the NDEP and its partners are promoting diabetes prevention to health care professionals to give them the information and tools to help their patients take small steps to prevent or delay the disease.
