Chronic Disease Prevention Toolkit
NACCHO''s Chronic Disease Prevention Project has collaborated with national organizations and the CDC''s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion in an effort to connect local and state public health practitioners with publications, tools, and other resources related to chronic disease prevention and health promotion.
The Alliance to Reduce Disparities in Diabetes has issued a set of health policy considerations based on the real-world experience of five local diabetes intervention programs. The policy considerations offer ideas for delivery system and health care financing reforms that could bring about significant reductions in health care disparities among people with diabetes.

Local Resources for Diabetes Prevention and Control Coalitions
NACCHO and the LHDs that participated in the Diabetes Today training program have produced a number of resources for use by local diabetes prevention and management coalitions. In May 2012, NACCHO compiled a document to summarize the 120+ page Sustainability Planning Guide for Healthy Communities from the CDC. Access the document here. Other tools available include an action planning template, community resource guide, and survey.
