Texas Diabetes Council The Texas Diabetes Program is one of 16 state diabetes control programs that receive comprehensive capacity-building assistance from the Division of Diabetes Translation, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, US Department of Health and Human Services.

These funds help state health departments:

  • build expertise in program, science, and policy areas to prevent and control diabetes;
  • coordinate statewide diabetes prevention and control efforts;
  • expand systems to define and analyze the scope of the diabetes problem;
  • improve access to diabetes care for all people and raise the quality of that care;
  • use statewide public health projects to reduce diabetes-related problems, and
  • inform, educate, and empower external supporters to prevent and control diabetes.

To achieve these goals, the Texas Diabetes Program contracts with the organizations below, including local health departments, community health centers, and grassroots organizations. These programs have demonstrated success in establishing useful programs for promoting wellness, physical activity, weight and blood pressure control, and smoking cessation for people with diabetes. All of these Community Diabetes Projects, found in both rural and urban settings, target racial and ethnic minorities that have disproportionate rates of diabetes and have limited access to health services.
